Public art has been a part of ARTS DISTRICT Liberty Station for several years. Public art is designed to attract visitors, create a sense of place and provide insight into the historical and cultural essence of the San Diego-Baja border region. These art pieces which are widely diverse, site-specific outdoor art installations will continue to help transform the historic 100-acre former Naval Training Center site into a thriving arts and culture destination for the community. Several of the pieces have been done in partnership with local galleries and are for sale as noted.
In 2017, NTC Foundation established the Art in Public Places Committee. NTC Foundation’s Art in public Places committee, chaired by Vicki Reed, oversees the selection of art projects which are on display at ARTS DISTRICT Liberty Station. These pieces are part of the program titled Installations at the Station. Artists are invited to submit proposals and selections are commissioned for one-year contracts.
