OUR MISSION:  to provide a sense of meaning and beauty to places in our community; to enliven our streets and neighborhoods; to celebrate our unique history, diversity, and creativity; and to engage, enlighten, inspire, and educate all citizens now and in the future.

The Durham County Public Art Program implements the Resolution Establishing A Public Art Program, adopted by the Board of County Commissioners on September 9, 2019.

Durham County and the City of Durham use the same program administration processes to provide consistency within our community for Artists, Donors, and Partners with whom we work.  We rely upon the participation and advice of the Durham Cultural Advisory Board and Durham Public Art Committee as the subject experts who represent the County's diverse population.
