Art In Public Places Program
The intent of the Art in Public Places Program is to provide a collection of nationally recognized, permanent outdoor sculpture throughout the City, to be of public benefit. The program is designed to present the community with a variety of sculpture styles and themes, all of the highest possible quality.
The Art in Public Places program is entirely funded by contractor/developer contributions. Generally speaking, contractors contribute 1% of the project cost toward the Art in Public Places fund for commercial or industrial developments, having a project cost in excess of five hundred thousand dollars ($500,000.00) or residential development of more than four lots or units, including single-family residential structures, condominiums, apartments, townhouses or other dwelling units, if the aggregate project costs exceed five hundred thousand dollars ($500,000.00). The other option is for the contractor to install a public art piece near or around the vicinity, subject to City Council approval.
