Of 300 submissions, Americans for the Arts has announced their picks in their 2010 Public Art Year in Review, naming the 40 best public art works in the U.S. and Canada, of which five are in California.

Of the five, three are in Los Angeles: Sara Daleiden's interactive "Domestic Hollywood" is a guided walking tour; Peter Shelton's "sixbeastsandtwomonkeys," is a cast bronze sculpture outside LAPD's headquarters (LAist story); and the Cliff Garten Studio's "Sentient Beings" is the steel and LED lights at the Art Institute of California in North Hollywood. The other two selections are in San Francisco and Fresno (no image available) respectively.

Congratulations to all the artists for their work in public art.
