Public Art in San Diego

Another measure of a city is the availability of public art. Public art may not be public owned or on public owned property. Some are monuments, others are architectural elements and others are separate pieces unto themselves. Here are some cases of public art in San Diego.

Some artwork is set to adorn structures such as the statue in this fountain in Balboa Park or this tile work adorning the walls of the Sante Fe Railroad Station, downtown.

All towns and most public spaces have monumental art. These are statues, other sculptures, or paintings in memory of a person or group of persons such as these two. The first is that of Cabrillo, first to explore California.

Placed in Balboa Park and to grace the entrances of a museum.

Along the Embarcadero, the city has planted some interesting artwork in planters.

The first shall be last. There are several items of artwork on Shelter Island.
