How Can Public Art Best Impact Raleigh?

Raleigh Arts is Analyzing Your Responses!

Raleigh Arts is working on the city’s first-ever public art plan, which will provide new direction on how public art is created for public and private places throughout the city. Through this process, Raleigh Arts will be looking at how to maximize the use of public and private public art resources in a way that reflects the evolving use of public space in the city; taps broadly into the city’s creative resources; embraces the diversity of the city’s communities, histories, and cultures; and supports the city’s arts ecosystem.

The Raleigh Public Art Questionnaire has concluded and Raleigh Arts is working to analyze and document the responses in a research report. The findings will be used to inform discussions of an advisory committee and ultimately recommendations that are brought to the Public Art and Design Board and City Council.
