The power of public art enhances our experience and our quality of life. The City of Sugar Land has a rich history of creating community and engaging civic dialogue. The Public Art Program, through the concept of place, aims to beautify our city and draw residents and visitors to enjoy Sugar Land and the beauty of everyday life.
Connecting Brazos River Park and Crown Festival Park at Sugar Land is an Overlook that is the subject of an elaborate mosaic project. The mosaic welcomes visitors and creates a colorful focal point within the natural park. The design is entitled Interlacing Patterns and is made of glass tile and celebrates the natural beauty and cultural heritage of the city.
Traffic box wraps have been installed in Sugar Land as part of the Public Art Program. The installation has “wrapped”. The thirteen traffic boxes along U.S. Highway 90A between U.S. Highway 59 and State Highway 6 were created by local and regional artists and add beauty and vibrancy to the thoroughfare.

Artist Monica Garza-Mischer with Settlers Way Elementary art students collaborated to handcraft mosaic panels that incorporate themes of nature and Settlers Way Elementary mascots and values. The artwork is titled Discovering Brazos Bend & Beyond.

Adopted in December 2016, the City of Sugar Land's first public art plan seeks to develop a comprehensive, multi-year public art plan and implementation guide. The plan is intended to further define the vision for public art and outline efforts to achieve the city's goals over the next five years.
