Art in Public Places

Charlotte Arts, your local Arts & Humanities Council, promotes the work of local visual artists through its Art in Public Places program. It’s easy to find art in your community simply while you’re out and about in your neighborhood. Charlotte Arts offers residents and visitors to Charlotte County access to public places with art changing as often as every other month. Art exhibits include watercolor, oil, acrylic, traditional media, jewelry, digital art, photography, and more. Most of the pieces are available for purchase.
