Public Art GUIDE

As you wander around downtown and the wider area of Chico, you'll come across a variety of vibrant and eye-catching artworks such as colorful murals, shining sculptures, tiled benches, water fountains, and other art installations. These pieces not only beautify our sidewalks, alleys, building walls, and parks, but also help to cultivate a lively and inclusive community.

Looking for more information on Chico's murals? Many of our murals are painted on private property and not fully funded by the city. We are currently adding new and existing murals to our inventory.
