Infusing Del Mar with art


The City of Del Mar aims to infuse art into public and private spaces through a variety of methods and media.  To build a framework for a vibrant arts program, the City Council has adopted a Public Art Policy (PDF) and impaneled an Arts Advisory Committee (PDF)

The Public Art Policy sets guidelines to accept donated or consigned pieces as well as installations such as murals on private property.  The Arts Advisory Committee has published an approval process (PDF) and flow chart (PDF) for donated work and an arts opportunity map. Starting in May, the art policy would allow for the acquisition of art pieces with City funds.

Arts Advisory Committee

The Arts Advisory Committee meets at 2 p.m. on the fourth Wednesday of every month in the Del Mar Civic Center Town Hall.

If you are seeking to either donate or temporarily loan artwork to the city for display in a public area, please complete and submit the Public Art Proposal Form to
