Create your own public art projects

Raleigh Arts can help you create a piece of public art on city property through the Do-It-Yourself Public Art Projects program.

A working sundial painted on a tree stump.

You can find this nature-inspired piece located in Fred Fletcher Park near the tennis courts.

Local artists Wayne Hansley and Tyler Denton turned two tree stumps at Fred Fletcher Park into a compass and a working sundial. How? Through Raleigh Art’s Do-It-Yourself Public Art Projects program.

Are you interested in adding your own splash of color to our community? Raleigh Arts can help guide artists and community members through the City of Raleigh’s permitting process.

Here are the stipulations:

  • Artists or community members must submit a proposal.
  • Pieces must be located on city-owned property.
  • The projects are self-funded, community-funded, grant-funded, or sponsored.
