The City of Dania Beach is experiencing unprecedented growth with the addition of commercial and residential developments in all sectors of the City. This rapid change to the built environment and influx of new residents, has presented an opportunity to consider the appearance of the City of the future. City leaders recognize the potential to transform Dania Beach for the benefit of citizens, while highlighting its charm, character, potential, and history through public art.
Planning for public art in Dania Beach began in 2009 when the City Commission adopted the Community Redevelopment Plan, which recommended establishing an art in public places program. The City’s Economic Development Strategic Blueprint (2012), recommended establishing an arts committee that could assist with the implementation of programs that would make Dania Beach a more artist-friendly City.
