Birmingham Public Art

Public art is a vital part of the City of Birmingham. Art creates a richly diverse and meaningful experience while enhancing the visual character of our community. We invite you to enjoy the art we have on display and engage a friend, neighbor, or stranger on which piece is their favorite.
