Public Art Plan and Reports
The Strategic Plan that established Creative Sonoma in 2014 included a long-term goal of assessing and developing a Public Art Plan for the County. Our staff have been researching best practices and working with public art experts since 2018 in preparation to present a plan in 2023.
With funding from The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, a Sonoma County Public Art Plan is in development during 2022-2023. Watch this space for more information – and ways to participate – soon.
In preparation for the development of the Sonoma County Public Art Plan, multiple studies were undertaken to assess the role of and resources for public art in our community.

In December 2022, the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors approved a plan to create and install a commemorative artwork recognizing the lives of those who perished in the 2017 wildfire complex. Creative Sonoma, a division of the Economic Development Board, will facilitate the project on the County’s behalf. Learn more about the Fire Memorial Work Plan and the associated Task Force HERE.
