Public Art in Augusta

Public Art is an important part of the our community, and we’re working hard to bring even more installations to Augusta! In 2012, the Greater Augusta Arts Council was named as the Public Arts Agency for the City of Augusta and our goal is to establish a high quality public art program in the local area. We recently completed a Master Plan for Public Art in the Augusta River Region, which can be viewed online on our Public Art page.
