Art in Neighborhoods

Tempe’s neighborhood grant program supports efforts to improve and enhance community spaces and cultivates opportunities for neighbors to commission artwork and other improvements. The art sites are inventive and sometimes unexpected. An irrigation standpipe serves as a backdrop for historical dialog, and an entry wall is now a canvas for a metalworker. The neighborhood grant program is funded and run by the Neighborhood Services Division and supported by the Public Art program.
