A robust public art program fosters economic development, creates vital public spaces, and promotes general health and welfare by contributing to a more desirable community in which to live, work, and visit.

On November 19, 2019, the El Segundo City Council adopted Ordinance 1594 establishing a Public Art or In-Lieu Fee Requirement and a Cultural Development Fund. The requirement applies to certain commercial and industrial developments with a project cost exceeding $2,000.000.
