The Art in Public Places Committee (APPC) oversees the Public Art Program in Santa Rosa. The purpose of the public art program is to enrich the community by integrating a wide range of art into public spaces, recognizing that art in a public setting is vital to a livable community. The APPC develops policies and goals for the selection, placement and maintenance of works of art. The APPC strives to ensure excellence in the public collection by active participation in a sequence of selection stages of art projects. To find out more about what the APPC does, please visit the Art in Public Places website.
