Over the years Cary Visual Art has placed more than 50 works of art, valued at more than $1 million at parks, businesses and public property across the Town of Cary. Sculpture and two-dimensional works by artists from all over the country are prominently placed in Cary's public buildings and open spaces. Cary Visual Art commissions the placement of public art, supports exhibitions and engages the community through sculpture tours, artist residencies, lectures and workshops. They view partnerships as an essential component of public art – by involving individuals, community groups and local businesses with the commissioning process, public art has greater impact, levels of appreciation and longevity. This comprehensive approach has provided a vast array of sites, types of artwork and community involvement.
