Mission of the Public Art & Design Program
The Arts Council's Department of Public Art and Design facilitates civic improvement projects of all kinds: public art, parks, cultural facilities, live/work spaces, etc., which have resulted in over $2 million in projects since 1990. In partnership with the Long Beach Redevelopment Agency, Arts Council staff administers the Agency's Percent for Public Art Policy which requires eligible private developments to allocate 1% of total costs to the Public Art Fund or to the creation of on-site public art or cultural facilities.
Public art staff with expertise in cultural planning are available for consultation. To learn more contact us at (562) 570.1930 or email@example.com
