Rockville is committed to public art and believes it contributes to the well-being of our city. Our dedication to beautifying the city includes painting our storm drains and fire hydrants to commission artists to create pieces for our grounds and other public areas.
In 1978, the Art in Public Places program was established to generate an identity that continues to make Rockville a prime destination in the greater Washington, D.C., metro area. The different art pieces, scattered throughout the city, reflect the vitality and diversity of the people and businesses within the community. The arts are very important to the residents of Rockville, and serve to maintain and enrich the character of the community, improve the quality of life and foster economic development.
