County of Volusia Art in Public Places

January 25 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Art in Public Places Cool by artist Dan Gunderson

The County of Volusia Art in Public Places program will be the topic of my discussion at the New Smyrna Beach Public Library in January. Subjects will include defining art in public places, locations to find county owned art, how the program operates, and more. You can find incredible artwork throughout our county.

Learn more about this county initiative by using THIS LINK. From courthouses, to libraries, to the Ocean Center, to the Daytona Beach International Airport, art is a critical component of publicly owned and accessible buildings. While often times these pieces go unnoticed, art is crucial to setting the tone for buildings and their intended use.

We will also briefly discuss other Art in Public Places locations and programs in Volusia County. From sculpture walks to sharks, Volusia County cities and museums offer a wide array of art for the public to enjoy, free for the viewing.

Art in Public Places programs are available throughout the county. Often times, they are right before us and we don’t even realize it. You can find an example of public art in Thomson, Georgia. Their public art exhibit titled 12 String Strut, honors local blues legend Blind Willie McTell.

This event is free to the public and will take place on Thursday, January 25, 2024, at 10a.m. If you are in town for the IMAGES: A Festival of the Arts show, we invite you to attend. You will learn a bit more about the art that you will find throughout Volusia County.
