Sculptures are installed and plotted on art map

The Temporary Outdoor Sculpture Program has opened with five works in downtown Del Mar and a map that charts a one-mile art stroll.

The sculptures, artists, and locations of the works, are:
  • Pasaje a lo Infinito by Hugo Heredia (15th Street and Camino del Mar);
  • Moonshadow by Jeffery Laudenslager and Deanne Sabeck (northeast corner of 9th Street and Camino del Mar);
  • Hanging Out by Maidy Morhous (15th Street and Stratford Court);
  • Birds Eye View by Petrello and Graham (southeast corner of 14th Street and Camino del Mar); and
  • Terpsichore by David Beck Brown (southeast corner of 12th Street and Camino del Mar).
The pieces encompass an array of iron and glass, some of it patina-coated and some of it brilliant with color. They will remain on display for up to 23 months.

The Del Mar Foundation is underwriting the cost of the program. All sculptures are for sale. Visit the Del Mar Foundation's webpage for details.

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. 

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 (PDF) to
