Great cities deserve great art! The City of Worcester encourages and promotes the enrichment of the cultural landscape of the City through aesthetic improvements of public spaces, uniting artists and community and inspiring civic pride.
The City of Worcester Public Art Working Group (PAWG) is made up of local citizens and art lovers who are commited to supporting public art initiatives in the City of Worcester. These community members want to see more public art created in the City.
Projects presently underway under the auspices of PAWG include:
The City of Worcester's Executive Office of Economic Development is spearheading an effort to increase the amount of publicly accessible art in Worcester. As part of these efforts, staff created a catalogue of existing public art as well as a public art map. In an effort to identify locations and opportunities throughout the City for the installation of additional permanent and/or temporary public art pieces, the Public Art Working Group (PAWG) was established. PAWG advocates for the creation and installation of new publicly accessible art and is currently working to identify possible sites for new public art.
