Public Arts Commission

Olympic Wannabes by Glenna Goodacre

In addition to advising the City Council in all matters pertaining to City Sponsored public arts programs, the Public Arts Commission seeks to increase public awareness of the visual arts including, but not limited to, exhibition of sculpture, paintings, photography and video.

As part of the Public Outdoor Sculpture Loan program, the Commission conducts sculpture searches, evaluates and recommends sculptures, identifies sculpture locations and works with City staff on placement and maintenance of sculptures. Additionally, the Commission promotes artists’ works through media exposure of the City's sculpture program.


The Commission meets the fourth Thursday of each month at 5:00 p.m. in the Community Meeting Chambers at City Hall, 1 North San Antonio Road.
