Traditionally, "public art" invokes the images of historic bronze statues of a soldier on horseback, or a large decorative fountain in a park or plaza setting. Today, public art can take a wide range of forms, sizes, and scales - and can be temporary or permanent. Whatever the form, public art instills meaning - a greater sense of identity and understanding of where we live, work, and visit - creating memorable experiences for all residents and visitors to Manhattan Beach.

Enjoy a virtual walk through the many artistic treasures found in the City of Manhattan Beach by viewing the Public Art Story Map. The goal of our Cultural Arts Commission’s “Art in Public Places” program is to offer a variety of artwork at different sites throughout the City. Discover various sculptures, mosaics, memorials and even a time capsule! 

Other artworks from the Public Art Trust Fund includes: 9/11 Memorial Project, Light Gate, Sculpture Garden, Murals in Manhattan Beach, and Utility Box Beautification Program.
