Public Art

The West Town SSA Public Arts Initiative values cultural diversity and takes art out of designated space and places it in the public context to create full accessibility. Through highlighting local, emerging, and established artists; the goal is to culturally invigorate our vibrant community by enriching the neighborhood with pieces of public art, which will help to stimulate the local economy and establish West Town as a unique cultural destination.

 

The West Town Art Walk features a self guided tour #WestTownMurals with map of the public art in West Town to discover.
