Public Art

Since 2010, the City's Public Art Collection has grown to 20 permanent public art pieces and includes ongoing temporary art. Public art helps to develop a unique sense of place and create a beautiful, thought-provoking and energetic vibe that ultimately enhances the quality of life for residents and visitors.

Public art is art created by a professional artist or in collaboration with artists, through a formal process established in the City Acquired Art Policy. Public art is publicly accessible to all citizens and can be in any medium/media and take on any shape, form, or scale. The City's Public Art Master Plan provides the design and curatorial guidelines to plan, acquire, and maintain public art for residents and visitors.
