Public Arts Commission

About the Public Arts Commission

The Public Arts Commission facilitates the development of public art within the City of Asbury Park, recognizing that art is integral to the vibrancy of the community. The Commission ensures that all public art contributions to the City complement the buildings and neighborhoods with which they are associated, and that they are guided by the current strategies for economic development and tourism, enhancing neighborhood and community identity, and educating children and adults.

The Public Arts Commission reviews applications for the creation of public art within the City including, but not limited to, the erection, painting and/or installation of murals; oversees the commission and creation of artwork where appropriate on municipal and private property; advises the Mayor and Council, as well as other agencies of the City, with regards to matters which affect the creation of public art within the City; and develops and regularly reviews a public art plan and guidelines.
