The City of Richmond is a leader in creating opportunities for public art and is committed to building the cultural health and well being of the community now and in the future. All capital projects are evaluated for inclusion of public art including civic infrastructure, new buildings, building upgrades and parks.

The public art funding rate for civic public art projects is one per cent of the approved Capital Project construction cost.

See Section 5 of the Public Art Program (Policy 8703) and Section 6 of the Public Art Program Public Art Administrative Procedures Manual for complete details on the Civic Public Art Program.
