City Releases Public Art Tours Map
Today, the City of Charleston’s Office of Public Art released a Public Art Tours Map. This map allows citizens and visitors to explore the City’s public art collection from their home. Folks can explore seven different areas of Charleston and explore the entire public art catalog – nearly 250 pieces.
“While we are working to slow the spread of COVID-19 and are staying home more in an effort to stay socially distant, we want to provide opportunities for learning,” said Director of Public Art Jeff Pierson. “Now folks can stay home and enjoy art from throughout the city. It can also be used for self-guided tours in our communities.”
Each piece is cataloged with information including artist’s name, medium, year of creation and a photo. The map can be viewed at https://gisweb.cityofcharleston.org/storymaps/arttour.
