Public Art Resource Guide

Published by the Wake Forest Public Art Commission, this resource guide encourages developers and builders to consider how works of art can enhance their projects and provides steps for incorporating art into projects.

The Town of Wake Forest is a small community with a big sense of place. With its deeprooted history, abundant arts and cultural events, and vibrant downtown, it is a town that encourages its citizens to live, work, and play within its borders. 

Thoughtful creation of gathering spaces, often centered by public art, enhances the livability of Wake Forest. The Factory, with its sculptured fountain; historic downtown, with its enhanced streetscape and artist-created benches; and E. Carroll Joyner Park, with its serpentine rock walls all invite visitors to linger.

The Public Art Commission of Wake Forest encourages developers and builders to consider how works of art can enhance their projects. This resource guide provides information to inform the business community of public art project types and to guide them through the process of implementing art projects.
