From the farmers market space, down the Pearl Street Mall, to the public library, approximately 30 different pieces of art are featured in a 1.5 hour walking tour. Participants will discover installations dating back to the 1970s to present day and learn more about the artists and their inspirations.

“The colorful murals and array of sculptures help tell the city’s story. We’re excited to share the inspiration behind the art with residents and visitors alike,” Lauren Click, the arts and culture manager, said. She added, it’s also a great way to just get outside and experience the city.
