ArtAround Roswell

A partnership between the City of Roswell and the Roswell Arts Fund, ArtAround Roswell is hosting ten established works of art on loan to the city by their artists. The sculptures will be on display in selected Roswell parks from April through December 2016, and a variety of special events and celebrations are planned throughout the year.

The ten works of art can be found in key park locations throughout Roswell. Whimsical, witty, nostalgic, awe-inspiring — learn more about the sculptures and make plans to experience them for yourself. Come for a quiet visit, pause during a run or bike ride, or bring your friends and family to enjoy a day in the parks.
