Public Art Projects

AVA Offers New Public Art Projects

Public art can be much more than a sculpture in a public space. Public art can be a dynamic, collaborative, community-based project that encourages people to engage in a creative process that benefits the world in which they live.

By participating in a Public Art Project at AVA Gallery and Art Center, not only do you acquire new skills for your creative adventures, but you also beautify our community in collaboration with other artists interested in doing the same.

Advance Transit Bus Public Art Project


Between December 2009 and February 2010, AVA Gallery and Art Center, Advance Transit and Two Rivers Printmaking Studio successfully partnered to install 77 original artworks by 40 artists of all ages and abilities in the interior “headliners” of our regional network of buses. The works delivered free, unexpected art-experiences to passengers spending time en route and is a great example of how public art projects simultaneously involve and beautify our community.

Get involved with a Public Art Project and help make art a part of everyday life!
