A: Everywhere! We have many murals in our Downtown district, and there are painted traffic signal boxes on every corner. Impromptu art installations pop up on construction barricades as a tribute to our business communities’ support of public art. The Jessye Norman School has been working on a Painted Piano project; you can see the pianos all around the school, in front of the Book Tavern on Broad, and soon a baby grand painted by Rhian Swain and Baruti Tucker will be inside the Municipal Building. The Augusta University Campus is filled with great examples of sculptures with a gorgeous piece in the Dental School created by local mosaic artist Paul Pearman. 13th Street from Walton Way to Sacred Heart Cultural Center has several sculptures that are visible from a car. Of course, the brickwork on Sacred Heart (13th and Green) is a great example of public art.
There's no scientific research or hard analytics to back up our findings, but we spend a lot (maybe too much) time on Instagram, and these are the places we are seeing top the list!
