About Downtown Arts

Downtown Arts provides support for and generates awareness about members of Greensboro’s visual arts community while enhancing the downtown environment with original works of art.

Artists who are full-time residents of Greensboro with a practice in painting, sculpture, drawing, glass, photography, digital arts or fiber arts may apply for our Downtown Arts Programs. Applications are currently open and the deadline to apply is December 5, 2023.

Art on Downtown Kiosks

A $500 honorarium will be awarded to ten artists whose artwork is selected for digital display on the 11 electronic kiosks in downtown Greensboro. Each artist will have one artwork displayed for up to a 10-week period during February 2024 to January 2025. Click the link below to read about the current artists selected. 

Art in City Hall

A $3,000 commission will be awarded to one artist who will create an original work that reflects their creative perspective on the theme "Greensboro in 2023." The original work will become part of the City’s permanent art collection and displayed periodically in public facilities. Creative Greensboro will produce and install an enlarged reproduction of the original artwork to display in the Melvin Municipal Office Building (MMOB) from June 2024 to June 2025.
