Looking For Art in All the Right Places…
Public Sculpture in Los Altos

Olympic WannabesSince 1987, sculpture has been displayed on public land throughout the City of Los Altos. Pieces are chosen for visual appeal, artistic skill, and compatibility with the environment and safety standards.  Artists benefit from enhanced recognition, media coverage, and the potential to sell their work to local art lovers. The variety of work has stimulated comment and added a new cultural
dimension and richness to our public spaces.

The City currently owns eighteen permanent sculptures and also showcases approximately ten sculptures as part of a rotating program under which the sculptures are on loan from the artist for two years.  The Public Arts Commission advises the City Council on the selection and placement of all public sculptures.   The Commission takes an active role to enhance the visual aesthetics of the City, engage the community as participants, and promote and support the visual arts.

For more information on how to serve on the Commission or regarding the program or sculptures, including their purchase at the end of the loan period,
Please contact the City Manager’s office at 947-2740 or email to .
