Middleton Master Plan for Public Art and Design 

A Public Art and Design Program within the City of Middleton springs from the City’s Comprehensive Plan and from requirements of Section 2.29 of the City of Middleton Ordinance. This Program has been informed by ideas expressed by residents, city staff, elected officials, and young people. In 2021, the Arts Committee updated the plan through an addendum.
