Art in Public Places is a City of Miami Beach program for curating and commissioning public art. The program was created in 1984, with its ordinance adopted in 1995. The program allocates funds totaling 2% of hard costs for City Projects and joint private/public Projects. Appointed by the City Commission, the AiPP Committee’s seven members serve in an advisory capacity to the Mayor and City Commission.  Artworks commissioned by the City of Miami Beach Art in Public Places should add value to the public art collection, attract international attention and celebrate the diversity and heritage of Miami Beach.
