Article on Mill Valley's new Public Art Program  - PDF version

The program initially proposes to incorporate five elements and transform these objects into an experience of art and the natural environment, which will delight, fascinate and encourage community bonding and social engagement.The Arts Commission’s ongoing goal is to provide encouragement of exceptional arts activities, events and programs that allow the arts and arts-related cultural environment to be enjoyed by all citizens of Mill Valley; one way to achieve this goal is by creating a public arts program including the temporary and permanent installation of art works on public and private property.  Creation of a Public Art Program (PAP) has been identified as a strongly held desire by community members and the local arts community.
