EVERYDAY ART IN DOWNTOWN STOCKTON
Downtown Stockton 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.
Public Art is present downtown 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.
Guided Tours: With advance notice, the Downtown Stockton Alliance will arrange for a free guided tour of downtown for your school, organization or group. To schedule a guided tour of the Historical Downtown Stockton or Hidden Public Art, contact Manuel Laguna at (209) 888-8636 or email .
