City of Farmington Hills Public Art Program

Public Art Program LogoThe City of Farmington Hills, believing strongly in the value of the arts, created the Public Art Program in 2010 to enhance the newly renovated Farmington Hills City Hall. The exhibit delights visitors, employees and dignitaries alike with thought-provoking and enjoyable artworks in glass, painting, pottery, wood, fiber, photography, sculpture and mixed media. During the two-year duration of each program, there are exciting on-site events which coincide with the exhibit, providing more exposure with local art collectors and businesses.

This latest exhibit is the sixth phase in the City’s Public Art Program and features work from 61 talented artists from Farmington Hills and surrounding communities. The City gratefully acknowledges the artists who have so generously loaned their work to further enhance the atmosphere of City Hall for visitors and employees. Most of the work is available for sale; the prices and details of the pieces are listed in the Artist Guide below.

The collection is open: Monday-Friday, 8:30AM - 4:30PM

Paintings, sculpture and mixed media are installed throughout City Hall, making it a local art gallery. Rotating exhibit events provide exposure to a broader audience of art collectors and businesses, in addition to the citizens, visitors and staff who get to experience art every day.
