The Norfolk Public Art Program strategically locates artwork in three areas that have the most visible impact.

(1) DOWNTOWN (2) in NEIGHBORHOODS & COMMUNITIES, and (3) at major GATEWAYS & CONNECTION POINTS.

The Public Art Program also manages several lead artists during the summer who mentor students hired through Norfolk’s Emerging Leaders Program.  Lead artists work with the students over an 8 week period to complete a public art project.  Those projects are featured below under Summer Program.  

In the past, artists have also been hired to completed temporary public art projects through our program.  Most are featured below under Temporary Artwork.

Other artworks are located throughout the City in areas such as the NEON District, the Botanical Garden, and in various neighborhoods.   Funded through private developments, donations, or other means, they are not featured here but can be seen on the public art map (we attempt to include all public art in the City on this map).   The mermaids you see around town are not listed on our site as they were not commissioned through the City’s 1% program either.   What is 1%? Read  how the City’s pubic art program is funded.
