Public Art Commission

Background and Purpose

The Public Art Commission (PAC) was created to enrich quality of life through the provision of public art. The primary role of the PAC is to make decisions and recommendations to City Council regarding the selection and installation of public art, and other matters relating to the quality, quantity, scope, and style of art in public places.

The PAC meets on an as-needed basis.  Please refer to the Upcoming Public art Commission Meetings page below to see if meetings are scheduled and for the meeting agendas. 

The next Public Art Commission Meeting will be held at 6pm on Wednesday, September 25, 2019, in Room 360 at City Hall (2263 Santa Clara Avenue).  The agenda will be posted 7 days before the meeting.
