Cathedral City’s Public Arts Commission is funded by developer fees, no public tax money is used for the purchase of art. The mission of the Public Arts Commission is to advance performing and visual art in the community. It makes recommendations to the City Council on the selection, acquisition and installation of public art paid for by developer fees; support and production of concerts, readings and other live arts performances; sponsor programs; development and use of facilities for arts projects; and cooperative ventures with other art organizations throughout the Coachella Valley
A primary activity of the Commission is the purchase and installation of major outdoor art pieces for the community. Recently, it installed six donated sculptures from world renowned sculptor Simi Daba. The Commission also has developed an app for I-Phones and Android Devices which lists all the public art in the community, gallery, locations, artists and more. The free APP is available by searching in the APP Store or Android Play Store for: Cathedral City Where Art Lives.
The Commission holds meetings the 2nd Monday of each month at 5:30 pm in Council Chambers on the third floor of City Hall.
