Launch "Art for Public's Sake" to make art a part of everyday life in the City by creating a rotating collection of local art and displaying them in public spaces.
Explanation: 

Let's revitalize New York's connection to the arts, as well as our City's artistic potential and talent, by creating a rotating collection of local art through a private-public partnership fund called "Art for Public's Sake". Artists would be paid very modestly to let their work be displayed in the public areas and government buildings. After a period of time the art would be moved to a new building, for a new set of people to see and appreciate. Every few years we would return the work to the artist and update our collection.
