The City’s Art in Public Places Program has nearly 70 publicly-owned art works and 230 art installations available to the public in private locations. And both collections are growing as the City commissions’ additional work and private development extends the reach of the AiPP. Just under a third of the collection is in exterior spaces visible from the public domain and the remainder is accessible during normal operating hours of the building housing interior art works. The collection ranges from mosaics, artfully-designed bus stations, oil and watercolor paintings, utility box art, stained glass, sculptures, benches, and respite gardens.
