Los Angeles (L.A.) has a rich legacy of public art, ranging from municipal civic projects and corporate sculpture to folk art, murals, and graffiti. L.A.'s public art reflects the city's geography of criss-crossing freeways, urban sprawl, and hidden neighborhoods. To tour L.A.'s public art sites is to view official and unofficial visual markers of the city's history. Many of the art sites are purposely geared toward freeway drivers while others are for public transit riders and the walking urban traveler.
