Thoughts from Jackson Hole, WY

The following is quoted from a publication called, “A public art toolkit for rural communities” sponsored by Jackson Hole Public Art. Jackson Hole has a population of approximately 10,000 people. Placed in the public realm, public art is free and accessible to all people to experience on their own terms. Public art can be temporary or permanent, large-scale or small, abstract, or realistic. It can stand alone or be a well-integrated and functional element of a building or plaza. Public artists have the unique opportunity to express current issues, create an identity for your community, recognize a moment in history, and inspire actions in the future. Public art has the potential to visually connect civic spaces, inspire walkable communities, and to imbue the man-made environment with community character."

San Clemente

San Clemente embraces public art as part of its identity; evidenced in the pavement tile murals on Avenida Del Mar, the mosaic bench on the beach trail near Riviera, and the colorful utility boxes around town. The list of favorites is endless.”
