Art in Public Places

Art in Public Places

The purpose of the city of Sierra Madre art in public places program is to promote the general welfare by encouraging pride in the community, increasing property values, enhancing the quality of life, uniting the community around shared cultural experiences, and creating a cultural legacy for future generations. The program will achieve this purpose through the collection and exhibition of high quality, stylistically diverse art pieces, the chronicling of local history through the collection of artifacts, documents, and memorabilia, and the creation of programs and activities offering artistic opportunities. The program will implement the cultural and recreational elements of the city of Sierra Madre's general plan. Such a plan calls for provisions for the arts and other cultural resources in new commercial development within the city. The art in public places program will further that program goal by establishing a requirement that the design of certain projects incorporate a public art component.
