Steps to the General Public Art Process

Public art may be planned or unplanned…

Planned public art includes intentional integration of art, as aesthetic elements into building or space architecture, as well as planned stand alone art for building or space grounds and landscape. Public art can refer to commissioned, unique works as well as established works of art. This applies to both public and private development.


Unplanned public art includes all gifting. Gifting requires a special policy that provides acceptance criteria and maintenance.


All Public Art is managed through a similar process that provides for customization based on specific circumstances and budgets. Every public art project or initiative will include a community outreach plan. These processes and recommended ordinances are presented in detail in our Public Art Master Plan.
