Art for All
Art for All
Great cities have long considered public art a key component of a vibrant community — an essential element of placemaking and city design, a tool for promoting connectedness and economic development, and a means of providing people with experiences.
Public art enhances the culture of a community: it’s timeless, impacts generations, and is accessible to everyone. Art is a true differentiator, and has become Suwanee and Gwinnett’s niche in metro Atlanta.
What is so remarkable about the success of our city’s art program is that it has been accomplished primarily with private funding. While Suwanee provides the infrastructure of new parks and green spaces, it is the support of private citizens that provides the public art that has played such a significant role in what Suwanee does, what Suwanee is, and how Suwanee is viewed. With your help, we will continue to elevate the role of public art and the impact of artistic engagement in our community.
The City of Suwanee and Public Art Commission is embarking on a capital campaign to raise funds for three public art installations, including an interactive, signature piece that will enhance the new park as a public amenity. These pieces will act as a catalyst to transform the project from a park to a place.
