City of Brevard Public Art Policy
"In order to beautify public areas, enhance the quality of life for Brevard citizens, attract tourism, promote arts and culture, and encourage businesses to locate within the city, thus expanding Brevard’s economic base, it is the policy of the City of Brevard to promote public art, where appropriate, through the implementation of a clarified process and design guidelines."
