Public Art in Creve Coeur

Beginning in August 2009, the Creve Coeur Public Art Task Force, now named Arts Committee, was charged with investigating public art in Creve Coeur and developing a public art master plan. As part of this process, the Task Force worked to identify all existing public art in the city. Identified examples of public art will be inventoried and mapped in order to heighten awareness of public art in the community and aid the community in considering future placements of public art.

Public art in Creve Coeur refers to original quality works of art in any media for temporary or permanent placement in accessible public places. Examples of public art already identified include:
