Public art is a significant feature along the Downtown Greenway, and includes pieces for pure inspiration, work to celebrate history, and functional pieces such as benches, bike racks, and signage. Explore the cornerstones, neighborhood benches, special features, and other site furnishings and landscaping that can be found on the Downtown Greenway now and learn more about what is to come as future sections are completed.
Many other communities have used public art to add unique visual interest and beauty to their parks, trails and greenways. Click here for photos of some of those pieces of public art for further inspiration.
The Downtown Greenway Public Art Selection Panel has selected Harries and Héder Collaborative to create the next public art Cornerstone commission for the Downtown Greenway. The “Tradition Cornerstone”, the second of four major cornerstones to be installed as anchors for the four mile Greenway, will be located on the corner of West Smith and Prescott Streets in downtown Greensboro.
