Art Around Leesburg

What Is Public Art?
In the most general terms, “public art” is defined as works of art displayed in public spaces. Some would further define it as works acquired by donations or purchased with public funds and made accessible for the public to enjoy.
At its best, public art engages the community it serves, and it enhances the location and space it is displayed in. Whether it is cast, carved, built, assembled or painted, public art aims to be an expression of the collective community.

Why Is It So Important?

Cities around the country have gained value through public art – cultural, social, and economic value. Public art can display the history and culture of our area. At the intersection between past, present and future, between disciplines and ideas; public art tells the story of our unique town.
What Do We Do?
The Friends of Leesburg Public Arts is a non-profit membership organization established to provide funding, advocacy and volunteer services for a variety of projects, programs and events that foster the growth of the arts and culture in the Town of Leesburg, VA.ᅠ We engage the community at large in both fundraising for, and active participation in, public art projects.
Established in 2012 to host the Leesburg Fine Arts Festival, the Friends of Leesburg Public Arts (FOLPA) also supports projects developed by the Leesburg Public Art Commission and initiates programs that sustain a vibrant arts community.
