The Havre de Grace Arts Collective manages Public Art as an important local initiative, and continues to deliver creative projects within the town through the HdG Public Arts Committee.
The City of Havre de Grace has identified public art as an important tool for economic and cultural development, one that can simultaneously strengthen the fabric and identity of the community and raise its profile throughout the region and beyond. This is one of the goals of the Arts Collective through the public art initiatives that it leads!
The goal of this effort is to develop and implement a comprehensive public art program rooted in the heritage, architectural and natural beauty of this city and environs, and in its strong sense of place. Professionalizing and formalizing the public art process are essential steps to attract the support, funding, sites and artists needed to achieve the full potential of public art for this city!
