Dublin Art in Public Places

Dublin Arts Council’s Dublin Art in Public Places collection includes both large and small visual artworks throughout the city of Dublin, Ohio. The Dublin Art in Public Places program began in 1988 and has grown to more than 70 sculptural elements today. Dublin Arts Council maintains that public art should inspire an emotional response, provoke questions and invite interaction, while encouraging ingenuity and creative discovery by artists. The collection of public artworks distinguishes our community and creates a sense of place while contributing to Dublin’s aesthetic legacy.
