What is Public Art?

Read About The Sculpture Trail Process

It’s public! Everyone has access to public art. It’s directly in the public sphere and not confined to galleries or museums. It enriches Cloverdale’s physical environments, bringing streetscapes to life. It also adds enormous value to the cultural, aesthetic and economic vitality of a community. Public art contributes to a community’s identity, fosters community pride and a sense of belonging, and enhances the quality of life for its residents and visitors.
