The Coral Gables Art in Public Places Program was created by ordinance in 2007 and took effect in February 2010. You can find the full text of the ordinance in the Zoning Code, Article 3, Division 20. The program addressed two important goals: (1) maintaining the City's Historic Public Art Collection and (2) commissioning, acquiring and exhibiting new public artworks in Coral Gables. Funds from municipal projects are dedicated towards preserving the Historic Public Art Collection, while the participation of private developers addresses the goal of having new public artwork in the City. Below, please find the Public Art Master Plan and Guidelines adopted by the Commission, as well as a brochure outlining the responsibilities and requirements for Developers.
If you have any questions regarding the Public Art Program, please contact the Economic Sustainability Department (305) 460-5311.
