Bridges to Bridges

Chico was ranked as the #10 art town in America by author John Villani in 2004. And there's little wonder! The City of Chico has supported many artistic endeavors around the community and often integrates them into public spaces for all to enjoy. The city maintains a Public Art Portfolio [link to document needed]. Currently, Public Art Tours are conducted in the fair weather months. A Public Art Bike Tour project is coming soon. See also Art Galleries, Chico State Campus Art, and Butte College Campus Art


Chico has many murals throughout town.


Luminary Art Benches

The Luminary Art Benches are a Public Art project of the Arts Commission. The aim of the project is to create tributes to world-renowned persons who either are former Chicoans who went on to become famous or who contributed to Chico's history in some way. Also see Benches for those benches that are found outside of downtown.


Along with 10 benches, there are also 6 Pedestal Art Seats located throughout downtown. Chico is the theme of the pedestals.
