Public art activates space and helps to tell a community's story. It acts as a marker for a destination and builds city pride. It shares where we've been and where we're going.
And it's pretty interesting to look at.
In and around downtown Canton, we are so fortunate to have a huge variety of public art that tells the story of our city. From the soaring football-esque spires of Centennial Plaza to the bold neon signage at spots like The Auricle and Grapes in a Glass, and from Patrick Buckohr's "Critter" sculpture series to the Special Improvement District's series of murals, there is a lot to see in a day or two.
Below, I'm sharing some of the public artwork that highlights the best of Canton, from food to shopping to our incredible parks.
