A New Way to Learn About Public Art in Hillsboro
Hillsboro’s Public Art collection is now part of the WESTAF (Western States Arts Federation) online Public Art Archive where visitors can learn about public art throughout the world, including 87 pieces of Hillsboro public art. Behind the scenes, the online database tool also aids in the City’s management and cataloguing of our growing collection of public art. Through joining the Public Art Archive, the City of Hillsboro’s Public Art collection is now more accessible to our community and to other cultural tourists well beyond our city limits.

Hillsboro’s Cultural Arts Action Plan
Developed in 2017 and 2018 with a broad range of diverse community voices and ideas, the Cultural Arts Action Plan builds on the Hillsboro 2035 Community Plan and other strategic City plans to make Hillsboro more creative and welcoming. The Plan’s 21-member Steering Committee worked with community members and partners to evaluate Hillsboro’s current creative assets and identify opportunities to embed creative expression and cultural experiences in the daily life of every neighborhood in Hillsboro.
