Public Arts Midland
Why we exist
Public Arts Midland is a space to help people create connections through public art. We believe that art connects, heals, inspires, teaches, and speaks to us in myriad ways that build stronger and more vibrant communities. Public art gives our community a collective voice and a way to express our values while it brings awareness of and beauty to our city’s physical and cultural landscape.
2023 Theme: Art Connects
Each year the Public Arts Midland committee chooses a theme that acts as a lens for us focus our work through. For 2023 our theme is art connects. We believe art brings people together. It gives us common ground. It gives us a way to express ourselves when we create, and see parts of ourselves reflected in the work of others, letting us know we are not alone. We are all connected and art can help make that more apparent. Our work is done with the goal of sharing all the amazing art opportunities in our town, and making art more accessible to all.
We are looking forward to another year of creating with you, the community to keep working towards our larger goal; the Midland County vision. Together. Forward. Bold. An exceptional place where all people thrive.
