Neighborhood Treasures celebrates historically significant Monrovians through the installation of public art pieces in various neighborhoods throughout the community. The goal of the program is to enrich the lives of those who view the art and improve neighborhoods by its presence.
Neighborhood Treasures was developed by Monrovia Area Partnership staff and leaders, vetted by the Art in Public Places Committee, and approved by the City Council in 2018. Neighborhood Treasures' public art includes specialized art work that visually represent the life and contributions of the honorees.
Three Neighborhood Treasures are being unveiled in 2018.
