Public Art

The mission of public art is to encourage a sense of shared community and understanding of the area's heritage, pride of place for future generations, to visually enhance public spaces and to promote an appreciation for the visual arts.

Most of the public art works were created between 1990 and 2000 under the auspices of the Antioch Civic Arts Program and community groups, such as the Antioch Friends of the Arts. Developers have also contributed to public art as a condition of approval to develop business and shopping centers, such as the water feature at the corner of Hillcrest Avenue & Lone Tree way, the "Drop" at Prewett Park Community Center, and "Breeze" at the intersections of Dallas Ranch & Rock Springs.
