Art at Public Facilities

Print

Public art projects in Tempe develop as the community grows and city construction is implemented. Tempe has commissioned art at fire stations, City Hall, the Tempe History Museum, the Public Library and at other public buildings. City projects are funded with capital improvement funds.
