Arts District & Public Art

Stroll downtown Jeffersonville where flood wall murals, creative crosswalks, sculptural bike racks, and painted utility boxes have transformed the city into a beautiful canvas of color. Community members participate in the Jeffersonville Arts Alliance's "JAM Sessions" to create public art alongside professional artists and art educators.

Downtown New Albany's "Fork in the Road" at Market Street and other public art installations throughout the historic corridor reveal a vibrant, growing art scene. Every year, the Carnegie Center for Art & History hosts a public art event. Held every year in the fall, the #IAmPublicArt event is a chance for you to not only see, but to participate in making art.
