Long Beach has public art designed to inspire, engage and tell the stories of our city. The Arts Council for Long Beach believes that a high-quality archive of public art in the community 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. We are currently working on a comprehensive archive of all the public artwork in Long Beach.
If you would like to recommend an addition to our archives, please email email@example.com with the subject-line: “Public Art Archive.”
In addition to Long Beach having wonderful public murals by local artists, for a consecutive year, the city was visited by famous artists from around the U.S. and other countries via POW!WOW!LongBeach. These artists brought new murals to our streets and public spaces. Pow!Wow! started in Hawaii six years ago, and the organization is pivotal in sparking conversations, strengthening ties to the community and showing the possibilities for making cities a mecca for all things art.
