Public Art

We catalog art that can be viewed from public streets and sidewalks throughout the City. We have inventoried over 80 pieces of art in various front yards, and on commercial buildings, sidewalks, and retaining walls. Click on the map to see the public art in Takoma Park, and visit the tkpkartabout Tumblr for photos of public art and interviews with the residents who proudly display them!
