Public Art

Public art has the power to transform daily experience by encouraging active engagement with our sense of place. It stimulates a community by attracting visitors, new residents, and businesses. Lawrence, like all viable cities throughout the world, is identified by its public art. The Lawrence Cultural Arts Commission works toward expanding the interaction between Lawrence citizens and art by overseeing the Annual Outdoor Downtown Sculpture Exhibit and the Percent for Art programs.
