Is it on your phone yet? The app highlights more than 70 pieces of public art, shares their details, and navigates walkers or bikers to public art throughout the city. You don’t need to be an art expert to experience the enrichment that art can bring to our daily lives – download a copy of the Public Art Map, download the app to your phone, and get walking!

Find the app in your app store:
