Public Arts Midland

Public Arts Midland is a space to help people create connections through public art. Our vision for 2020 is Art Plays. The world has rapidly changed in the past month, but the role of art remains the same. 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 both the physical and cultural landscape of our city.

The pianos for the 2020 #ArtPlays campaign have been delivered! Make sure you check out the official Public Arts Midland Map to learn where you can see these magnificent works of art.

Stay tuned for more details on what we will be up to this year, and why we’re up to it. For now we would love to see how you’re being creative at home! Comment below with what you’ve been up to, and don’t be shy! We want to see it all- decorated windows, coloring books, paintings, photos, baking, making music… it’s all art!
