Can’t go to a gallery? Enjoy public art.

It’s spring – or it almost is. And we are all working from home with no social interaction and nothing to do but watch the news or take a walk while keeping a distance of six feet. Theaters are closed, galleries are shuttered. 

So there is no time like now to enjoy public art!

For the past few years there has been a political discussion about public art – especially monuments. However the time and public funding that is put into art created for all to enjoy is truly reflective of how much a community cares about its soul – and not just its structure.

Whether through statues, murals, fountains, or installations above, below or beside you – public art can inform, inspire, challenge or amuse. And it can be enjoyed by all.
