here can you find art in the city's public
spaces? Featuring colorful murals to creative
sculptures, downtown is a good place to start.
Many installations are the brainchild of Art
For Art's Sake, or AFAS, which champions public art. A standout
spot? Its ARTivity on the Green, a colorful park with a walkway
dominated by bright red metal towers and looping steel beams.
Find murals such as "Looking Back, The History of the Black
Press," "Tree at Last," and "Miller's Department Store" by artist
Marianne DiNapoli-Mylet around the gallery-packed Downtown
Arts District, or DADA. At Bailey Park, artist Laura Lashley's
colorful mandalas appear like blooming chrysanthemums in
a 100-foot-long mural. And at the corner of Fifth and Cherry
streets, on the western wall of Small Batch Beer Company, find
Lashley's brilliant turquoise mandala flanked by two birdlike
figures shimmering with touches of copper.
If you're seeking sculpture, look up. Brought to life by a variety
of area artists, "Mannequin Shenanigans" features a cast of colorful
characters unexpectedly clinging to the sides of buildings - and
sometimes even rooftops. And not to be missed, the Forsyth
County Central Library unveiled an 8-foot outdoor installation titled
"Timeless Purpose" in 2017. (Learn more on page 16.)
Perhaps the newest art on the block, though, is the conjoined
"Twin Arches" along U.S. 52. Spearheaded by Creative Corridors
Coalition, this piece is one of many planned to create a more
inviting - and inspiring - welcome to town.
