Public Art

While you are exploring Gainesville, you are very likely to find paintings or sculptures or perhaps even a little gold "BURD". These installations of Public art are displayed in accessible and visual areas across our community. What is “Public” Art? Works planned and created with the sole intention of being placed within an accessible public domain and is created specifically for a public place which influences or makes a difference in how an individual or community relates to that place.

Many of these are made possible by The Vision 2030 Public Art Committee which is committed to enhancing the lives of every citizen and the community's long-term economic vitality through exhibition of public artworks. To learn more about this fantastic community program and the legend of the 2030 BURDS, please visit the link below.
