Public Art Abounds in Downtown Stockton

Public art is present in Downtown Stockton wherever you go: on sidewalks, inside buildings, in the squares and plazas. From brass inlays in the sidewalks, to ornate tree grates and murals on buildings, the downtown features a wide variety of styles and artistic vision.

Downtown is filled with signature historic architecture that will take you back to the times when Stockton was called “the brick city.” Many of the oldest civic and commercial buildings are still in use and feature the original ornate facades and classic interiors.
