The city of Phoenix approved the 2020 Public Art Plan budget at over $10.3 million, nearly $600,000 more than 2019.
This year’s budget is the fourth-highest recorded amount within the last ten years, with 2010 being the highest at almost $18.3 million.
At the formal City Council meeting Wednesday, the council approved the outlined 33 projects to be worked on over the next five years, two of them brand new. Mayor Kate Gallego said at the meeting that she is excited to support the projects as well as the city.
