Where to See Art

The central areas around City Hall and Poncitlán Square boast some of the city's most well-known public artworks. 

You can admire the beloved Larry Chimbole sculpture by Michael Medina, a tribute to Palmdale's first mayor, at the Palmdale Civic Center, home to a 20-foot tall sculpture titled "Facing the Sun" by Lazzari and Evans Public Art, which pays homage to the sun and the region's native flowers. You’ll also want to check out Rancho Vista Park, featuring Roger Hetizman’s "Cosmo,” a large kinetic sculpture powered by the wind.

Parks like Marie Kerr and Domenic Massari are also buzzing with art. Artist Michael Farhat with Art Mobb painted murals on the basketball courts, highlighting the soul of Southern California. A mural made of acrylic paint by Nuri Amanatullah is displayed on Marie Kerr’s community building, paying tribute to the Antelope Valley's most beloved landmarks.

You can take in other notable murals, part of the Antelope Valley Walls, at various locations, from Desert Sands Park to Manzanita Heights Park.
