Public Art Program
Art is a form of communication that can serve as a connection between citizens and the city in which they live. Thus, public art has the potential of fostering a sense of community identity. Glendale firmly believes that public art is an essential element in instilling citywide pride and vitality, and therefore, takes its responsibility of enhancing citizens' experience of the arts seriously.
