The mission of Arlington Public Art is to engage the community and enrich public spaces through original public art that celebrates and adds to Arlington's unique historic, cultural, natural, and human resources. Our focus is to enable, commission, and purchase temporary and permanent works of art that our community considers to be life-enhancing in the present as well as a legacy for future generations. APA plans to reflect, enhance, and expand the Town's heritage, diversity, and character through an inclusive and broad vision of public art that is integrated into the architecture, infrastructure, and landscape. APA works cooperatively with public and private organizations and individuals to accomplish this civic mission.

What is Public Art?
As you walk or bike around Arlington, you'll discover a sculpture, a painting on the side of a building, or a mosaic mural. Unlike art in a museum, public art is located on street corners, in schools, senior centers, libraries, parks, plazas and sidewalks.
