Vienna Public Art
space you know
a place to go
Imagine unique art scattered throughout town just waiting to be discovered. What will you see when you turn a new corner, what will you bring your friends and family to see as you show them our town?
Public Art is art created for and accessible to the community, in public spaces both indoors and out. The back of a building, a patch of grass, a stretch of concrete … now filled with potential.
Public art transforms towns. It makes a space you've known all your life suddenly new—a destination, a place to go.
The Vienna Public Art Foundation (VPAF) is a local non-profit arts organization dedicated to supporting and funding artistic projects in the Town of Vienna, Virginia.
The Town of Vienna, encourages public art as a means of distinguishing the community, creating a unique sense of place, and bringing beauty, creativity, and culture to everyday life.
Public art in Vienna is created and supported through private efforts, community organizations, and the Town of Vienna’s Vienna Public Art Commission (VPAC), which advises and assists Town Council on matters related to the advancement of public art. VPAF supports VPAC and its vision.

Our Public Art
It’s everywhere. It’s up to you to see it.
Our lives are made of a million moments … the things we see, places we go, people we meet. It’s art to take notice, of the strange or unexpected, but more importantly of what you cherish but didn’t realize until just this moment. Art is all around us, waiting. Acknowledge one thing a day, your perspective will change, you’ll be an artist of life, for life.
Explore some of the public art from around our town.
New Projects Ahead
We're all about art with a purpose. Does it bring our community together? Does it enrich our surroundings? Does it encourage collaboration between artists and Town citizens?
Share your ideas, and we'll share ours.
