Art @ Fifth

Enhance culture and art in La Quinta

Art @ Fifth

Art @ Fifth was created to highlight La Quinta’s commitment and appreciation for the visual arts. Each art piece in the City’s collection contributes to La Quinta’s rich culture while emphasizing the intellectual, creative, and positive lifestyle of La Quinta residents. The City has acquired and commissioned over 100 unique art pieces through APP in a variety of mediums including paintings, murals, sculptures, photography, and mixed media. These distinct pieces can be found throughout the City in various public locations such as La Quinta City Hall, Wellness Center, La Quinta Library, roundabouts, and City parks!

More public art is on the way! La Quinta City Council recently approved the design and build of a Gold Star Family Monument to be featured in Civic Center Park.

The title of Gold Star Family is reserved for families of military members who have died in the line of duty and is meant to honor the service member’s ultimate sacrifice while acknowledging their family’s loss, grief, and continued healing. La Quinta has a long-standing tradition of honoring veterans by hosting the annual Veterans Recognition Ceremony, during which local veterans have their names, ranks, and dates of service engraved on the Veterans Acknowledgement Monuments that were installed in Civic Center Park in 2000. La Quinta will erect an additional art piece specifically honoring Gold Star Families.

Artist CJ Rench has been selected to design and build the Gold Star Family Monument which will feature three bronze stars mounted on a circular base. The stars will have removable panels where the names of fallen soldiers will be engraved alongside military branch information and words of comfort.
