In February 2017, the City Council held a study session to discuss commissioning a public art piece to commemorate and honor the City's namesake, Anson Burlingame. The City subsequently contracted with Fung Collaboratives to guide the City through the process of selecting and commissioning the public art.
The first Public Art workshop was held Tuesday, September 26, 2017. Click below to view a video of the workshop presentation led by Lance Fung from Fung Collaboratives.

Public Art Workshop Part 2 - Anson Burlingame The Man and His Legacy by David Chai, Ph.D
From the Association for Public Art website: "Public art can express community values, enhance our environment, transform a landscape, heighten our awareness, or question our assumptions. Placed in public sites, this art is there for everyone, a form of collective community expression. Public art is a reflection of how we see the world – the artist’s response to our time and place combined with our own sense of who we are."
