Roanoke Celebrates Ten Years of Public Art
Roanoke, VA – The City of Roanoke is celebrating the 10-year anniversary of its Public Art Program. To commemorate this milestone, the Roanoke Arts Commission will highlight a different work of art beginning this month, and continue monthly throughout the 2017-2018 fiscal year. The city will host live videos from different public art pieces and hold contests each month on Facebook and Instagram to generate interest in public art. Citizens are encouraged to visit art around the city and post photos to social media using #ArtInRoanoke. Check the “Art in Roanoke” Facebook Page and City of Roanoke Instagram pages regularly for art and contest announcements. Prizes include tickets, passes, and memberships to many of the arts and cultural attractions around the city, as well as $50 gift cards to Downtown Roanoke.
