At a time when it’s impossible to visit museums and galleries, why not take a walking or driving tour of Walnut Creek’s impressive public art collection? 

With over 70 pieces of across the city, if you don’t like one, there’s probably another to spark your interest. Collection highlights include Beniamino Bufano’s Hand of Peace in Civic Park, Phillip K. Smith’s Gradient Column at Brio Apartments, Seyed Alavi’s Fountain Head on Main Street, and Gerald Heffernon’s Bullman on Mt. Diablo Boulevard.
