The Jamaica Plain Branch Library currently being renovated has been selected as the first beneficiary of a new city program focused on bringing public art to Boston's neighborhoods. This Thursday, there will be a community meeting for residents to provide feedback on what type of public art they'd like to see at the library.

The Percent for Art program was established by Mayor Marty Walsh, and it will receive funding through capital improvement projects.

The city will gather input from stakeholders during the meeting so a draft for an RFP (request for proposal) can be issued for the project. The community meeting is scheduled for Feb. 16 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Curtis Hall Community Center (Senior Room on the Second Floor) at 20 South St.

The Jamaica Plain Branch Library on South Street is on schedule to open this spring.
