There is so much public art in Davis! You can even find a “Davis Public Art” map and go on a tour.
On the side of the Oddfellows Hall, you will find a vibrant mural depicting a family biking through downtown.
As you drive down East Eighth Street, you will see five very colorful bikes lining fences. These bikes act as planters, and have plants growing out of them.
Located in North Star Park is this sculpture of a dog on a bicycle. This is a part of a series of dog sculptures within the park.
Located on 3rd Street, the “The Bike Needle” is a large obelisk made up of bike parts. Acting as a bridge between Downtown Davis and UC Davis, this art piece is always surrounded by many bikers. At night, you can see it glow.
