What role should public art play in Pasadena’s cityscape? Several upcoming community meetings will focus on two major components of the city’s Public Art Program.
One component is a master planning effort that will define a new vision, goals and locations for public art. The Public Art Master Plan will complement the city’s General Plan.
Another is a temporary program that exhibits public art to a daily audience of residents, visitors and workers. The Rotating Public Art Exhibition Program invites artists and galleries to loan or create works at 10 sites throughout Pasadena for up to 18 months to enliven residential and commercial neighborhoods. Requests for proposals will be available at all meetings.
Residents, artists and other stakeholders are welcome to attend all meetings:
