Public artwork is art that people encounter in their everyday lives. While it might mean different things to different people, public art is always meant to be inspiring and accessible to anyone.
The placement of these works in public places helps to enrich our physical environment, bringing streetscapes, plazas, public buildings and parks to life. The Town of Parker has always been fortunate to display a large collection of public art, whether it be permanent pieces like the Ball and Jacks sculpture in Discovery Park, or temporary exhibits like the Art Encounters sculptures that change frequently.
The Town, Parker Arts and P3 (Partnering for Parker's Progress) have begun work on a new Public Art Master Plan that will help guide public art programming now and in the years to come, and we need your help!
No community master plan is complete without the feedback and opinions of residents, businesses and visitors. We recently launched a new project webpage via the Town's Let's Talk Parker community engagement website that allows visitor input via surveys, an interactive mapping tool and more.
With your help, we can work to keep Parker a vibrant community that embraces public art. Visit www.LetsTalkParker.org/PublicArtMasterPlan to participate today!
