Public Art

It is our mission to enhance the quality of life in Pitt County by making the arts accessible to everyone. One way that we do this is through the creation and facilitation of public art within the county. By making the places where we live, work and play more welcoming and beautiful, we are creating a deeper interaction between the community and environment.

Five Points Plaza Archway Public Art Project
In collaboration with the City of Greenville, we coordinate the public art displayed in the archways of Starlight Cafe across from Five Points Plaza in Uptown Greenville. This public art program was launched in 2015 with the help of The West Memorial Fund. The first selected artist, illustrator Alice Holleman, was chosen to have her illustration "Hurry" reproduced and installed in the archways. The graphic will remain on display for 2 - 3 years.
