The Public Arts Commission invites residents and visitors of Cathedral City to view the growing collection of Public Art in our city. Public Art in Cathedral City is made possible through Public Arts funds and private donations. Public Arts funds are collected as commercial development occurs. A percentage of development fees are put into the public arts fund which cannot be used for any other purpose. No General fund dollars are used for public arts.
