City launches app to help find public art in Fayetteville

Fayetteville residents now have an easy way to find public art around town.

The city’s GIS team this week launched the “Fayetteville Art Walk,” a free web-based tool featuring maps, photos, and information about public art installations throughout the city.

The app works on desktops, tablets, or smartphones, and includes nearly 50 municipal or private installations and works of art such as fountains, sculptures, murals, art benches, and more.

The simple interface lets users scroll through thumbnail images to preview works and then click on the thumbnail to view a larger image and find its location highlighted on a map. Users can also click on map symbols to discover public art locations throughout the city.

Public art included in the app were selected with help from city staff, the A&P Commission, and local artists. Photographs were supplied by artists, taken by staff, or used with permission of the Fayetteville Flyer or the University of Arkansas.
