public ART

Thomasville Center for the Arts believes that art — especially public art — sparks conversation. It brings communities together around common interests, new ideas, newsworthy subjects, visual excitement, and sense of place.

Public art instills meaning–a greater sense of identity and understanding of where we live, work, and visit–creating memorable experiences for all.  It humanizes the built environment, provides an intersection between past, present, and future, and can help communities thrive. It allows artists to create on purpose, connecting themselves to the community and to one another.

“Public art can express community values, enhance our environment, transform a landscape, heighten our awareness, or question our assumptions.”
