Public Art Master Plan: City of San Diego March 2004
Public art has the power, over time, to transform the image of San Diego. We envision a city with successful and engaging public spaces, where citizens and visitors alike will encounter works of public art that will surprise and delight them. We envision a city where quality public infrastructure will define the urban fabric, where the fine grain detail of the city will demonstrate the city’s commitment to excellence in urban design. We envision a city with artwork that celebrates the extraordinary diversity and history of our community, while pointing to the city’s aspirations for the future. We envision a city where a record of our local and regional artists are permanently marked in the public landscape. We envision a city where public art defines our community identity, where every urban village reveals its unique character.
