Downtown Greenway Public Art

Public art is a significant feature along the Downtown Greenway, including pieces for pure inspiration, work to celebrate history, and functional pieces such as benches, bike racks, and signage.  Explore the cornerstones, neighborhood benches, special features, and other site furnishings and landscaping that can be found on the Greenway now and learn more about what is upcoming as future sections are designed completed.

Many other communities have used public art to add unique visual interest and beauty to their parks, trails, and greenways.  Click here for photos of public art for further inspiration.

CALL TO ARTIST CALLS for the next neighborhood public art bench:

This will be the fourth neighborhood bench to be commissioned for the Downtown Greenway. It will be located on a section of the trail that runs along Bragg Street at the intersection of Arlington Street. The artist will be asked to collaborate with residents from Greensboro’s Asheboro Square and Arlington Park neighborhoods through a Community Meeting in order to incorporate concepts generated by that collaboration into the design of the bench. Click here for information on the application process. Deadline for application submission is Wednesday, February 1, 2017. Questions? Contact Barbara Peck at
