The City of La Quinta has a strong commitment to preserve the area’s unique character and to balance development with artistic enhancement. La Quinta has become a mecca for abundant recreational activities, the resort lifestyle, and a variety of housing, economic, and business development opportunities. Art has played an important role in the creation of La Quinta’s character and image. The Art in Public Places program plays an integral role in the enhancement of the City’s social and environmental growth.
Further evidence of the City's commitment to the arts is its association with the La Quinta Arts Foundation, which hosts the annual La Quinta Arts Festival in March.
