Public Art Creates Community
The Arts Council for Long Beach believes that a public art connects neighborhoods, offers residents and visitors insight into our collective heritage and encourages civic pride and community participation. This vision embodies the Arts Council’s resolve to improve the quality of life for all people in Long Beach.
