Public Art Archive

Public Art Archive

From Chicano murals to the Wide Open Walls festival, Sacramento, California has a vibrant public art scene. Students in the ART 118C: Public Art course at California State University-Sacramento interviewed the artists behind some of the murals and sculptures across the city. Their work makes up the “Sacramento Public Art Archive,” a growing repository of video interviews that records, preserves, and protects the history and artistic visions behind beloved works of public art across the city.
