In Kalamazoo we have a growing and vibrant public art collection which includes sculptures, murals, and interactive experiences. The Kalamazoo County Public Art Commission (PAC) was created by a joint “Urban Cooperation” agreement between the City of Kalamazoo, City of Portage and the County of Kalamazoo. The purpose of the Commission is to determine the best practices for the acquisition, installation, maintenance, and deaccession of public works of art. They oversee hundreds of pieces of public artwork, which includes indoor and outdoor sculptures, memorials/tributes, murals, and architectural detailing.
