Public Art

Rock 'n River by Colin Lambert and Peter AdamsFolsom has a diverse and growing collection of Public Art! Public Art is original artwork created by an artist(s) for a public place that members of the general public can experience. Public Art enhances public spaces and invites public participation and interaction in those spaces. The City of Folsom and the Folsom Arts and Cultural Commission recognize that the lives of the citizens of Folsom can be enriched by exposure to art in its various forms and that the community can be made more beautiful and more livable. They created voluntary guidelines in accordance with the City Council adopted arts and cultural plan, to encourage the inclusion of public art in the community.

Folsom’s Public Art program has the following goals:

To create more visually pleasing public spaces
To reflect the rich history of Folsom and to define its past and imagine its future
To increase public access to and enjoyment of visual arts
To reflect the community's values
To invite public participation and interaction with public spaces

Public Art in Folsom includes:

Private funding for privately owned projects - Artworks completed on a privately owned project funds in publicly accessible spaces with private and designed for the enjoyment of the public at large.

Publicly funded projects for publicly owned projects - Artworks completed on a public project funded by public funds. These funds may be obtained through public grants, donations, or general fund allocations.

Johnny Cash Trail Art Experience:

The Johnny Cash Trail Art Experience will be a world-class public art project that celebrates Cash's musical career and ties to the community with art installations integrated into the trail landscaping.
