From Santa Monica to the Valley

Summer’s longer days mean more time to poke around the city and explore new neighborhoods. With that in mind, here’s our map of notable public art in LA, highlighting some of the coolest murals, sculptures, and installations in the city.

We’ve included newer pieces—a mural on Skid Row created by residents of the neighborhood—as well as time-tested favorites like “Urban Light” at LACMA. Good public art doesn’t just live in Central LA, as a row of murals on a Pacoima street or a giant fork stuck in a Pasadena road show.

An urban-scale rainbow, an interactive hologram, and a space-age sculpture on the brink of restoration—all those and more are featured on this 38-point guide to finding public art wherever you go in Los Angeles.
