Public art is a part of our mental map of Hillsboro and is an important element of creating a community that future generations are proud to call home. It is a powerful tool for meeting the goals of Hillsboro’s community plans. Memorable public places strengthen our community. Such places attract us to downtown, enliven our neighborhoods, enhance our experiences in parks, inform us about the history and peoples of our place, and celebrate our ethnic and cultural diversity.

Public art can take many forms, including building facades, freestanding sculptures, murals, lighting, electronic media, photographs, water features, landscape treatments, kinetic pieces that move and react to the environment, and artist-designed functional elements such as paving, play equipment, street furniture, bridges and gates. It can include the written word, film or video, and performance.
