Cultural Council of Greater Jacksonville and Art in Public Places Announces Installation of New Streetscape Public Art in Downtown Jacksonville
Pedestrians in Jacksonville's urban core will notice pieces of public art being installed in various sections of downtown. Throughout the month of March, public artists commissioned through the City of Jacksonville’s Art in Public Places Program are implementing Jacksonville Downtown Investment Authority's plan to enliven the retail enhancement area with streetscape art.
Artwork is scheduled to emerge downtown along N. Laura, N. Hogan, W. Adams, W. Forsyth and Water Streets throughout the month of March. These site improvements are being implemented as Phase I of the DIA Urban Arts Project. The Cultural Council and Art in Public Places will host downtown walking tours of Jacksonville's public art during Public Art Week 2017, which is scheduled for April 3-7. The free public tour, which is scheduled for April 4, will commence in front of City Hall at 2:30 pm and culminate with a dedication of the DIA Urban Arts Project at 4:00 pm at the corner of N. Hogan and W. Bay Streets. RSVP for the walking tour by emailing Christie Holechek, the Director of Art in Public Places (firstname.lastname@example.org).
