Do you have favorite local treasures we should know about?
A treasure is a physical feature, visible to the public that enhances its surroundings. It can be a work of art, a historic building, a cultural icon, or a folk art gem. Scattered around the city, treasures are sources of delight and pride for the entire community.
Share your favorite treasures with us by adding them to the map or by submitting them below.
DISTRICT WIDE PUBLIC ART WORKSHOPS: APRIL/MAY
District-wide meetings were held throughout April and May and provided participants an opportunity to think about how public art might impact public space in Anaheim in parks, on corridors, in new developments, and in community gathering spaces.
If you missed this opportunity to participate, there are plenty of upcoming opportunities including two general public art city-wide meetings in June and throughout the summer. Until then, take the survey or check out the presentation below and share your thoughts on it with us here!
Over the coming months, we'll be sharing project resources here that support this planning project. Check back soon for these updates!
