The City of Burbank’s Art in Public Places Program was founded on the belief that the visual environment plays an essential role in creating the atmosphere for an enterprise culture and civic confidence, vital to growth and improvement. This program has made it possible for recognized artists to enhance public spaces throughout the City with sculpture, murals, and environs. The art pieces have become emblematic to Burbank’s commitment to the enrichment of the City’s cultural and educational identity.
ART IN PUBLIC PLACES COMMITTEE
The Art in Public Places Committee is responsible for selecting, advising and approving public art works for placement in municipal development projects.
ART IN PUBLIC PLACES ORDINANCES
The Burbank Art in Public Places Ordinance was passed in May 1992. It requires that 1% of major construction project costs be allocated towards on-site art, or if desired, be placed in the Public Art Fund, which is utilized to enhance or maintain art located on public land.
