Consider use of required art funding to plant use and native plants along side federal highways, buildings, and infrastructure. It currently costs the federal governement millions of dollars to "beautify" federal infrastructure that has to be supported and maintained. Make the "beautification" come through art dollars to create renewable and edible landscaping. Local entities can utilize the fresh results to feed the homeless and offer in the "free food" chain supporting the poverty stricken.
