Beginning in the late 1960s, CRA/LA Agency made Los Angeles one of the first cities in the country to require developers to incorporate art in their redevelopment projects. In redeveloping Los Angeles, particularly its Downtown, CRA/LA sought to recast Los Angeles as a world-class city, one whose vitality was strengthened by its commitment to arts and culture. Through its successful model, CRA/LA planted the seeds for a program and funding mechanism that has, over the past 35 years, expanded to encompass all public and private sector development in redevelopment areas.

The Art Policy was approved by the CRA/LA’s Board of Commissioners and the Los Angeles City Council in March 2005. It contains the following sections: Introduction, Policy Goals, Definitions, Management and Oversight, CRA/LA Obligation, Cultural Trust Funds, and Developer and Art Program Guides.
