Public Art Program


City Ordinance 3.80 created the Public Art Works Program and Fund. This ordinance allows for two percent of eligible funds for capital projects to be directed into the established Public Art Fund for the funding of public art projects. Expenditures from the fund are made at the discretion of the City Council, and the fund is administered by the City Finance Director. The City is responsible for the inventory and conservation of the current public art collection. The City's current public art portfolio is worth over $333,000 and includes 26 pieces of art located throughout the City.
