Public Art

Chattanooga has numerous outdoor sculptures, statues, murals and other works of public art. City officials, in partnership with consultants Barbara Goldstein and Gail Goldman, are seeking your input as they plan for the future of public art around town.

Philadelphia artist Meg Saligman travels around the world, getting commissions to create huge works of public art.  She’s painted a fresco in Mexico city, a water tower in Tanzania, and a 32,000 square-foot mural in Nebraska.

But her project on MLK Boulevard in Chattanooga is the largest one she's ever created.  In fact, she says it will be one of the largest murals in the United States, and she's asked local artists and dozens of volunteers to pick up brushes and help.
