Public Art Program


The City of Ventura's Public Art Program was established in 1991 and since then has incorporated an artist's vision to Capital Improvement Projects (CIPs) providing visitors and residents alike with a new understanding of urban design in Ventura. Recognizing the substantial economic and social benefits gained through public art, the City established an ordinance allocating 2% of eligible CIP costs for the commissioning of artist design services and artwork integrated into the construction of City projects.
