Art Every Day for Everyone

We’re all about bringing the finest public art to the City of Newport News that educates, transforms, and inspires our community… and we’re looking to you for help.


The great advantage of our “outdoor art gallery” is that it’s always free, always out in the open where everyone can enjoy it at any time — no ticket to buy. That means, though, no admission revenue to help pay expenses — to add new sculpture and care for existing pieces, to reach out with information that helps the public enjoy the art around them, to connect local schools with this valuable educational resource.

We can strengthen our community’s quality of life only with the community’s support.

Please help — and, as you go about the city, enjoy knowing that you’re helping make great art part of this great community.
