Program History and Selection Process

The public art mural program administered by the Beaverton Arts Program as part of its commitment to public art. The Beaverton City Council voted in April 2008 to exempt all public art from the city’s sign code and create a public art program for display of art on public rights of way and on private building facades and other private property under the terms of easements to be granted to the city for that purpose.

New murals are reviewed by the Public Art Selection Committee, a standing committee that is responsible for overseeing the city’s Public Art Mural Program. The program has a matching grant fund opportunity available.
