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.

Sculpture of the Month

The first full-scale casting of Leaping Gazelle was done in 1939 for the Levi L. Barbour Memorial Fountain on Belle Isle in Detroit. Fredericks requested that the casting from his garden be used for his tombstone. It is now in Greenwood Cemetery.
