The Art in Public Places Committee (APPC) oversees the Public Art Program in Santa Rosa. 

The Public Art Program is intended to enrich civic life, give voice to the unique creative spirit of Santa Rosa, and galvanize the City’s reputation as an arts destination. The Program integrates a wide range of art into public spaces, creating a livable community and contributing to economic development.
