Public Art

The City of Moscow supports local art through an Ordinance that requires 1% of the total cost of capital projects be dedicated to public art in our community. These projects include City facilities that are constructed or renovated, like the Intermodal Transit Center completed in late 2012. This program adds beauty to public places, enhances the quality of life for Moscow citizens, and promotes tourism to Moscow.
