Edmond is known nationwide for its “Art in Public Spaces” initiative. Started in the 1980’s, Edmond now features well over 100 pieces of art all across the city, especially in the downtown area. A public/private venture, local businesses and individuals purchase art, and the money is matched by City funds. A public art committee oversees the projects and approves each project. Once the art is installed, City maintenance crews take care of the artwork.
When people looking for a home in the Oklahoma City metro area discover the rich art background in Edmond, they are often drawn to the city when purchasing new and existing homes.
