Our Arts in the Community program seeks to increase public participation in the arts; encouraging creative ownership while providing community members with new opportunities to have meaningful arts experiences. As a tool to build community support for the arts, community art opportunities are offered for the general public at local fairs, festivals and public events. Art on Wheels also creates custom art projects for corporations with volunteer engagement initiatives.
To us, artwork which occurs in public spaces is best when it engages the community not passively, but actively. Through interactive public artwork, the broader community gains an increased appreciation for the ways in which art can be an integral part of their life, and our program design emphasizes widespread involvement which increases community investment in the project. Artwork which is produced outside and in the public sphere is additionally accessible to populations who experience feelings of intimidation or inadequacy that might prevent them from interacting with institution centered arts experiences.
Each year Art on Wheels engages thousands of people in creative expression through our carefully structured, finely developed community art projects. These events and happenings are customized to the specific event needs, budget and interest. Take a moment to look through some of our recent projects, this is a fun and very engaging aspect of our work in the community. We love to problem solve, brainstorm, and make art magical! Contact us if you would like to incorporate Art on Wheels into your event.
