Self-Guided Tour
Find Art Here: Connect with San Diego’s Civic Art

Explore the City of San Diego’s interactive map and self-guided public art tours of San Diego’s Civic Art Collection. There are sculptures, paintings, and functional and integrated artworks in a diverse range of media and materials. Color, line, shape, balance, rhythm, and contrast are just a few of the building blocks utilized by artists to create the works in the collection.
