Crossed CurrentsCulver City’s Art in Public Places Program was established by ordinance in 1988, with the view that cultural and artistic resources:

  • Enhance the quality of life for individuals living and working within a city; and,

  • Preserve and improve the quality of the urban environment, increase real property values, and have a positive economic impact.

By engaging the urban landscape, Culver City’s Art in Public Places Program brings the experience of art to a broad and diverse group of people. The goal of the program is to balance the community’s physical growth and revitalization with its cultural and artistic resources, resulting in improving the general welfare of the City, and increasing the availability of art to the public.

To date, there are over 100 individual artworks included in Culver City’s Art in Public Places Program. Approximately half are on private property and the other half on public (City) owned property.
