The City of Miami Beach Cultural Affairs Division manages the Cultural Affairs Program and the Art in Public Places Program:

Art in Public Places

The City of Miami Beach established an Art in Public Places program in 1984, following the example of successful programs in cities such as Seattle and New York. By ordinance, 1.5 percent of the cost of city-owned construction projects is set aside for works of art in public places other than museums which enrich the public environment.
