In 2015, Pompano Beach adopted a 10-year public art plan to beautify the city and make art more accessible. Laura Atria has been the manager of this program for 5 years and has been able to oversee the city to become a work of art.
You can visit murals in Artist Alley, a one-mile stretch of honeybee-themed mosaics, and sculptures of all shapes and sizes. The artworks benefit the city's overall well-being by creating public spaces for people to gather.
The 10-year plan has already set up how, when, and where art will be displayed. Ship Wreck park offers views of a tanker ship that was sunk to be an underwater gallery. Artists are commissioned to make new pieces that get featured on land for a year before they're also sunk and attached to the ship.
