Public Art

Community Engagement


website637479645277821022

Every project the Department of Arts & Culture’s Public Art Team manages goes through an extensive process where we check in with the community and stakeholders as well as our San Antonio Arts Commission. The very first step in this process is to engage with the community. Here you can find open surveys, learn about upcoming virtual community meetings, find final reports and more. 

Engaged residents are fundamental to the health of City government. The successful development of policy and implementation of City programs depends on meaningful civic engagement, which engenders trust and accountability between the community and the government that serves it. The City of San Antonio offers many opportunities for residents to provide input on City policies, programs and initiatives through the SA Speak Up program. Here you can find the Department of Arts & Culture's open surveys. 

These meetings are hosted through WebEx conference systems. For best experience, we recommend that you download the WebEx application. If you join by using audio only, there may be portions of the meeting with audio outages and information on screen that you will not have access to.
  • We do not currently have events scheduled. Check back soon.

Once each project’s survey and community meeting is complete, we will post a final wrap-up report of all community feedback gathered regarding the project.

    • Due to City of San Antonio COVID-19 precautions, the Arts & Culture staff will only be accepting input digitally through direct email to the Public Art Project Manager listed or SASpeak Up online survey responses. At this time, printed documents with comments or questions cannot be accepted. 

    • These meetings are designed to be video conferences. If you join by using audio only, there may be portions of the meeting with audio outages and information on screen that you will not have access to. For the best experience, we recommend you download the WebEx Meetings application.

    • During the virtual event, community members can submit questions via the chat function for the speaker to respond to, if possible and time allows. If the Arts & Culture staff cannot answer the question during the event, the Public Art Project Manager will follow up with the community member post-event. General comments (that are not in question format) may not receive responses during the event. However, the Public Art Project Manager will review them.

    • The chat in these meeting will be part of public record and open to everyone. We ask that you use the SASpeak Up guiding principals for conversation that is meaningful, transparent, respectful, and inclusive. And that you refrain from using profanity. Learn more at www.saspeakup.com.

    • If you cannot attend the virtual meeting, you can find a recording of the meeting in Recorded Meetings section of this site. We will keep this posted until the feedback window is closed. A catalog of all our Virtual Meeting recordings can be found on our YouTube account.  

    • All meetings start at 5:30 pm unless otherwise noted.
