Art and Beautification
The goal of public art is to promote a diverse and stimulating cultural environment to enrich the lives of residents, visitors, and employees.
Office of Arts and Culture
The San Mateo County Office of Arts and Culture (OAC) and its Arts Commission champions the arts as essential for a healthy and vibrant community by shaping innovative cultural policies, creating inclusive and diverse programming, and ensuring access to arts and culture for all, with consideration for race, ability, sexual orientation, age, gender, economic status, and cultural background. They commit to partnering with artists and arts organizations that represent and celebrate the diversity of our county, through the fair and equitable distribution of programmatic and financial support. They also support art events, programs, outreach, engagement and services that create social vitality in neighborhoods, K-12 schools, and under-served constituencies.
