Arts Commission Promotes Public Art with New Contest


Roanoke, VA - The Roanoke Arts Commission has launched a new campaign, Find the Art, to promote Roanoke's extensive public art collection.

Each month, the City will promote a new piece in the collection by posting an image on the Arts Commission's Facebook and Instagram pages. Community members who correctly guess the work's title, artist, and location, will be entered to win a gift card for various local businesses throughout the city. 

The contest's sponsors include: Roanoke Co+Op, Cancun Mexican Restaurant, BILLY's, Martin's, 202 Social, Fork in the Market, Awful Arthur's, Wall Street Tavern, Bread Craft, and Little Green Hive. 

For more information, please contact Susan Jennings, Arts and Culture Coordinator, at 540-853-5652.
