Public Art is often used as a catch-all term to describe murals, street art, statues, lighting art, etc., in the public realm. In fact, all of those things are better described as “publicly accessible art” because in the most cities, private art efforts that are funded privately and often on private buildings or spaces, make up some of the most exciting of creative endeavors that everyone can enjoy. Public art technically refers to that art which is owned, controlled, and maintained by the City, but we have included some privately commissioned and crowdfunded pieces in the list below.
The city has a wealth of cultural, historic, and organizational assets and visitor destinations; mapping these assets will continue to be a work in progress. If we’ve missed anything, please email us and let us know!
