Downtown Public Art Projects

Here is a little history about Iowa City’s Public Art Program and what they have offered this community in terms of the arts since the beginning. The Public Art Program was established in 1997 by the Iowa City City Council.

The Public Art Advisory Committee was also established to oversee the operations of the Public Art program and advise the City Council. They worked to identify potential sites that would be enhanced by the addition of public art and also recommended various pieces of artwork for those sites.

In 1997, the Public Art Program focused its attention on the downtown area, primarily on the pedestrian mall. Here is a look at some of the works in the main area of downtown.
