Public Arts Program

Throughout the downtown and greater Chico, you may discover colorful murals, shining sculptures, tiled benches, water fountains, and other art installations. They foster a vibrant, inclusive community and enhance our sidewalks, alleys, building walls, and parks. Below is a partial list of outdoor public art (both publicly and privately funded) throughout and near Downtown.


During the summer, CACF offers free Downtown Chico Public Art Tours. Be sure to visit our Chico Arts and Culture Foundation channel where videos of many pieces are available. Or download the Walking Map to lead your own tour of the Art Benches and Pedestal Art Seat Project.
