PUBLIC ART
along the Chandler Bikeway

All three of the art installations on the bikeway were made possible by Burbank city’s Art in Public Places program established in 1992. The program requires a development project with a construction budget of more than $500,000 to contribute 1% of the total project costs toward an art installation. In other words, taxpayer dollars were not used for these art installations. Private developer funds paid for these sculptures.
