Public art provides cultural exposure that amplifies experiences that a downtown rich in story, history and pride provide.
In its many forms, public art celebrates the very definition of a downtown, as a space to amplify the individual human spirit to be more than the sum of its parts.
If you value our downtown as a unique space full of vibrant commerce and an engaged community, then join us in advocating for it through public art, programming of cultural events and art education.

About the DBDA's
Public Art Initiative
The Downtown Belmont Development Association (DBDA), a non-profit 501(c)(3), is encouraging, promoting and facilitating more public art offerings in our community, specifically within our three Districts (Historic Downtown, Chronicle and River). Our public art initiatives seek to not only execute public art, but also further community education and exposure to a variety of art. Through these initiatives we aim to activate interest, participation and community input with a goal towards having more public art that beautifies and represents the richness and diversity of our culture and history.
