Over 60 percent of the California Arts Council’s budget coming from sales and renewals of the Arts License Plate funding that is in turn used for arts programming on the local level for kids and communities. Hundreds of arts lovers throughout the state show off their support of California arts by promoting the California Arts License Plate.
The California Arts License Plate, with its iconic sunset and palm tree motif, is a specialty plate that has been offered from the Department of Motor Vehicles since 1994. Proceeds from the Arts License Plate represent sixty percent of the California Arts Council budget and support the agency’s programs for children and communities.
The Arts license plate ("Coastline") was designed by prominent California artist Wayne Thiebaud and is the nation's first plate specifically designed to benefit the arts. With more than 125,000 plates sold since 1994, the Arts license plate is the most popular specialty plate in California. The plate is distinguished by a four-color graphic depicting palm trees, a sunset on the Pacific coast.
