Due to popular demand, and just in time for National Arts and Humanities Month in October, the City of Culver City has released the second edition of its Art in Public Places Downtown Walking Tour Guide!
“With this local guide to public art and history in the heart of Culver City, we hope to engage, entertain and inspire our community,” said Culver City Mayor Meghan Sahli-Wells.
The books are available free of charge and on a first come, first served basis at:
City Hall, on the second and first floors (9770 Culver Boulevard)
The Mike Balkman City Council Chambers (9770 Culver Boulevard)
The Culver City Historical Society (Visit the Historical Society’s website for opening hours.)
The free mobile app from Otocast Audio Guides is also available for download:
Narrated by artists featured in the guide, the app allows users to follow tours with both their eyes and ears.
Originally created in tandem with the Cultural Affairs Commission, the guide celebrates 30 years of the Art in Public Places Program. The latest bright red, 76-page compact book is full of color photographs and has two pull-out maps that guide readers through two walking tours spanning Culver City’s vibrant downtown. Additionally, the pocket-sized guide contains a flap for holding business cards, brochures and menus.
On their walking tours, members of Culver City’s community will learn about public art, historical buildings and the City’s other interesting characteristics. The guide also briefly describes the City’s history and includes facts about artwork and buildings that are fascinating once discovered.
