Liberty Station has championed, supported and encouraged public art since the first renovated buildings were opened at the former Naval Training Center (NTC). Liberty Station Public Art pieces continue to help transform the historic 100-acre former Naval Training Center site into a thriving arts and culture destination for the community.
Liberty Station Public Art is designed to attract visitors and create a sense of place. Acknowledging the beauty and uniqueness of ARTS DISTRICT, the Liberty Station Community Association (LSCA), and the NTC Foundation have partnered with local art galleries, artists and community organizations to showcase sculptures, murals and others.
In 2017, the NTC Foundation Art in Public Places Committee (AiPP) was established to oversee the selection process for Installations at the Station. Installations at the Station is an ongoing program meant to exhibit the thriving, dynamic and constantly evolving visual arts community in San Diego. The mission of AiPP is to address, highlight and commemorate the culture and diversity of the San Diego-Baja region. Artists are invited to participate through a request for qualifications process. Selections are commissioned for one-year contracts.
We invite the public to visit ARTS DISTRICT Liberty Station and explore the current public art pieces on display.
