Public Art

Emporia's Community Arts Alliance works to enrich and promote Emporia through the arts.

Emporians are passionate about the things we love, and it shows in our local art scene. From painted and interactive murals, to sculptures and venues for performing arts, you’ll find a variety of art forms around our beautiful city. Read on to explore our interactive Community Art Map below and learn how you can contribute and/or participate in future public art works.
