Arts & Sciences


This program involves the selection and installation of public art and funding for cultural arts within the community. Program staff works with the Beautification & Public Art Commission for public art and with Flagstaff Arts Council for cultural arts. The Arts & Science fund utilizes dedicated Bed, Board, & Beverage (BBB) Tax Revenues to support the operations of local arts, science, and cultural organizations, and their projects.

Public Art Program

The City periodically purchases and installs permanent outdoor art pieces at various locations throughout the City. Typically, the pieces are solicited through a call-to-artists process and juried by the Beautification & Public Art Commission. You can view the locations of the outdoor art pieces on the City of Flagstaff Public Art Map, copies of which are available at City Hall, Flagstaff Visitors Center, Flagstaff Chamber of Commerce, and the Flagstaff Arts Council. Learn more about public art on our Discover Flagstaff: Public Art and Art Map page.

Indoor Art Program

The Public art includes an indoor art program at city-owned facilities, including City Hall, the Adult Center, the Pulliam Airport, and the Aquaplex.
