public ART

Thomasville Center for the Arts believes that art β€” especially public artβ€” it sparks conversation across communities.  It brings people together around common interests and ideas, creates inspiring and memorable experiences for all, and strengthens the sense of identity and understanding of where we live, work, and play.

Public Art has the power to bridge the gap between past, present, future, and diverse groups of people, it provides artists with opportunities to leverage their artistic talent, and connects them to their community and to one another.

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