It has been said that a culture is best studied through its arts because creativity is the essence of existence. The Prescott Valley Arts and Culture Commission is pleased to introduce you to the annual Art at the Center public art program. Public art, by its nature, is meant to be an integral component of the landscape. Each sculpture created by the artist should be looked at, enjoyed, studied and talked about. Public art is never passive and is meant to get your attention. In our selection of outstanding sculptures, you will see a variety of media and approaches to form created by a variety of artisans from around the US.
The goal of the program is two-fold. First and for most, enhance and expand the community’s exposure to the arts. Second, market the artists work with the understanding that each visiting piece on display is for sale and that a portion of their sale proceeds will further the operation of the program.
Those sculptures, on loan from the artists, will inhabit our campus for 1 year until a new set arrives each and every spring. Until then, please enjoy this fabulous experience of interacting with these varied displays as you wander the grounds of the Civic Center. And take your time; they each have a special story to tell if you are willing to listen.
