This Commission's purpose is to advise and recommend on the quality, quantity, scope, and style of art in public places projects; to insure accessibility and diversity in art in public places; to advise and recommend on the development and implementation of the Art in Public Places Program policies and guidelines.

The 7-member Public Art Commission sets policy and has approval authority over all projects conducted through the Public Places Program. The program also includes the Municipal Art Acquisition program, established by City Council to document the history of visual art in Ventura by featuring and highlighting important works of art created by area artists. The collection provides increased access to artwork of high artistic merit and aesthetic quality through its display in the public areas of City Hall and other municipal buildings.
