About Southlake Public Art

Prarie WindsThe Southlake City Council and the Southlake Arts Council have been working together for years to cultivate the Public Arts Programs. The program is designed to enhance the cultural life of the community through the arts. The City Council and Arts Council came together to present the virtual video tour showcasing some of the City's most recent public art additions. Southlake City Council appointed the Southlake Arts Council for the arts council to advise on art-related matters and align all the public art initiatives. Resources for programs are granted through the Public Art fund and partnerships with arts organizations and community groups that bring art-related programming to the community.

The City’s first public art pieces were placed in 2008. Since that time, many more pieces have been carefully added with vision and guidance correlating with the City’s Public Art Master Plan, which explains the City's future strategy, how the Hotel Occupancy Tax supports it, and the program's rich history.
