Los Angeles is the home of the largest public art program in the country. The City's commitment to the arts was affirmed by landmark ordinances in 1989 that defined the meaning of public art and created a way to encourage the creation of art throughout the community that is unparalleled in its scope and quality.

A Guide to Public Art in Los Angeles invites its readers to discover the hundreds of public works of art some awe-inspiring, some poignant, and some controversial by both famous and lesser-known artists. Enhanced with neighborhood maps and beautifully reproduced color images by photographer Dennis Keeley, this book reveals the magic of the outdoor museum that is the city of Los Angeles.
