Public Art Master Plan

JCPRD is preparing for the future with the development of a new Public Art Master Plan which will guide the new Public Art Program’s vision for public art in JCPRD parks, greenways and facilities for the next five years. 

The planning process relies on broad community input, which will be gained through county-wide questionnaires, roundtable discussions, community events, and more. Stay tuned through this website, Facebook, Instagram and/or Twitter to learn about opportunities to participate.
