Art can bring its viewers joy, surprise, stimulation, and reflection in a way that is unique to a specific place. The arts can actually be an integral part of the “branding” of our city. It should honor local tradition and/or history while illuminating the City’s aspirations. As such EFA is pleased to supports the efforts of the local artists, community based arts organization, and City of Encinitas Division for the Arts in establishing public art policy while integrating art into the public spaces through advocacy and fundraising activities.
The funding of 6 pedestals for temporary display of sculptures was advocated by the EFA and the first of these pedestals was funded entirely by the EFA.
EFA is also pleased to advocate for public art through murals and through Paint Encinitas Project have been able to advocate and support the murals displayed through out the community.
