Public Art

Every great community has great art. 

There is a commitment to build on the region’s love of all forms of art, and there is public art displayed in accessible and visual areas across our community.

As an ongoing effort to bring awareness of public art to the citizens of Gainesville-Hall County, the Vision 2030 Public ArtCommittee introduces a public art adventure!

Vision 2030 Public Art’s Brenau Urban Rural Discovery Secrets or 2030 BURDS can be “discovered” throughout our vast community. We invite community members, and visitors alike, to be aware and let us know when and where you find one of these distinctive creatures. In fact, post your discoveries on social media to #2030BURDS.


Purchase your own 2030 BURD for $100 and one BURD will be placed in the community. BURDS may be purchased at the Greater Hall Chamber, the Norton Agency, Access WDUN, and the Quinlan Art Center

Our Vision

ART EVERYWHERE! 

Gainesville-Hall County is an art mecca with unique public art districts across the county. This includes Downtown Gainesville for performing and visual arts, Lake Lanier for music, Chicopee Woods for outdoor art and Gillsville/ Lula for cultural arts, folk art and pottery. Gainesville-Hall County has a multitude of venues to support performing arts including outdoor amphitheaters.  There is a commitment to build on the region’s love of all forms of art, and there is public art displayed in accessible and visual areas across our community.


This vibrant Public Art committee is fulfilling their commitment to build on the region’s love of art and have public art displayed in accessible and visual areas across our community!  Follow the hashtag #2030art to view the ongoing additions. 


The Public Art Committee invites you to view the PUBLIC ART throughout Gainesville and Hall County. Fifty-five works of art in a variety of media was cataloged in 2015 and 78 new pieces have been installed since then! 

We invite you to take more than just a tour of our public art, we invite you to explore the history and soul of our community on 2030art.com.   


Our initiatives depend upon grants, private donations, community support and corporate donations to conserve, preserve and make available public art to citizens and visitors in Hall County. 

The Public Art Committee is a proud partner of the North Georgia Community Foundation (NGCF) for the management of our charitable fund. To learn more about donating to the Vision 2030 Public Art Fund at NGCF, or call 770-535-7880.
