Art is Abundant
Public art is perhaps the ultimate collaboration project: donors, artists, owners, and the community come together to build public works. When art leaves the walls of a museum, it creates access for all. The process is often like herding cats, zebras, elephants, and butterflies into one room together, but the end result is magic.
The Starkville Area Arts Council promotes art in all aspects of our community. This website is dedicated to the public works of art that exist in and around Starkville and Oktibbeha County, whether or not funded or organized by SAAC. If you would like to be involved with a mural sponsored by SAAC, please visit www.starkvillearts.net or contact the Executive Director here. SAAC supports installation of public art through private donations as well as its own community grant program.
Are we missing a public work of art? Contact SAAC with information on the title, artist, sponsor, location, and date completed.
