The public art installations can be summarized fairly easily as this:
4 surf-themed statues & 1 surf themed tile wale and relief. These include Surf Circle, Ultimate Challenge, Duke Kahanamoku and the tike works of Donna Billig.
1 tile wall with history and lifestyle narrative
1 abstract sculpture at City Hall
Bird Mural tiles at city hall salvaged from a demolished Seacliff Shopping Center
2 abstract sculptures in front of Huntington Beach Library - Lady by Inez Owings, and another.
Abstract sculptured spirals & columns at Bella Terra mall courtyard
Huntington Beach's art scene includes 3-4 major galleries: Bill Anderson Art Gallery in Sunset Beach, The HB Gallery at the Hyatt Regency Resort & Spa, and the Huntington Beach Art Center. A small section of the Central Library has gallery space with rotating exhibits in what's called Windows Gallery because it is surrounded by windows.
From time to time you will find other galleries open, then close. The city is filled with artists, but not a real strong art shopping district like nearby Laguna Beach and Santa Monica both enjoy.
