Frisco’s City Council passed an Ordinance establishing the Public Art Program in 2002. The Ordinance calls for a percentage of Capital Project Funds to be used to commission public art. Known as Percent for Art, this mechanism is used by public agencies across the country.

The Ordinance also called for the development of a Public Art Master Plan to identify guidelines for the Public Art Program. A plan by Via Partnership was adopted in 2004. The plan was updated in 2018 by Designing Local, Ltd. to better reflect public art best practices and the needs of a growing city.
