Public Art

Santa Monica's civic public art program commissions new works and stewards the City's art collection. The public art collection features works by local, national, and international artists; permanent installations, art as infrastructure and as social practice, and the Art Bank, a collection on rotating display in public facilities. The City’s Percent for Art program contributes to the built and cultural environment with artworks made possible by both private development and public works projects. This work is administered by Santa Monica Cultural Affairs in consultation with the City’s Arts Commission and Public Art Committee.
