Daybreak Arts Council



In January of 2017, the LiveDAYBREAK Board of Directors created a committee dedicated to advocating for public art in Daybreak. The committee, The Daybreak Arts Council, is made up of Daybreak residents. 

The Daybreak Arts Council is to work in an advisory capacity to advocate for public art throughout the Daybreak community. This may include a variety of temporary, semi-temporary, or long-term art installations in Daybreak.


LiveDAYBREAK Community Arts are funded by Commercial Community Enhancement Fees (CE Fees) collected at the time of closing of a commercial property sale within Daybreak. The fees collected support community art initiatives. For resales, the fee is ½ of 1% of the sale price. It should be noted that the Homeowners Association (HOA) and LiveDAYBREAK are separate entities and have different funding sources.
