With support from an Our Town grant, the Arts Council of Huntsville, Alabama, in partnership with the City of Huntsville, will create a public art master plan, for one of the fastest growing regions in the country.

The plan will connect the city's neighborhoods and business areas through public art commissions and purchases. The Arts Council and the City will work with consultants VIA Partnership and Todd Bressi Urban Design to develop the plan and will engage the broader Huntsville and Madison County arts and not-for-profit communities in the planning process. Project activities will include an inventory of existing public art; development of program guidelines for acquiring, managing, maintaining, and funding a permanent public art program; and selection of immediate and long-term locations for public art.
