Temporary public art

The City’s temporary public art program supports the creation of art by emerging and established artists. Temporary public art can be a powerful tool to respond to contemporary social issues and reshape how we view our physical and social environments.

Temporary public art often comes in the form of street art, murals, banners, festivals, and installations. These artworks can last anywhere from a few months to 15 years.
