Culver 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.
