In 2004, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors adopted the County’s first Civic Art Policy, allocating one percent (1%) of design and construction costs of new County capital projects to a Civic Art Special Fund for the creation of civic artworks. The County’s Civic Art policy is managed by the Los Angeles County Department of Arts and Culture, through its Civic Art Division, to commission socially engaged civic artworks, as well as support conservation efforts, artistic and cultural services, and an evolving array of programming throughout the unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County in all five Supervisorial Districts.
Art in our public spaces is the result of thoughtful coordination among local communities, design team members and County staff.
The County’s Civic Art Collection belongs to all its residents and is comprised of historic and contemporary civic artworks located on County properties.
