Art Matters. Public Art plays a vital role in activating our public spaces; making the streets and public spaces come alive. Public art promotes vitality and energizes the community. Public art is visual story telling; it provides a sense of place, time, and identity. Please continue to support public art in your communities and neighborhoods!
