Public Art Initiatives

The Amesbury Cultural Council partners with the City of Amesbury to enhance and enliven public spaces with art.

Past Projects

Walk This Way - Summer 2021

Our summer public art initiative is now complete! Nine of the crosswalks in downtown Amesbury have been painted by some very talented local artists! Be sure to take a stroll around town and check out each one. Photography by Wendy Bush.

A full map of all the public art downtown will be available soon!


Chalk the Walk - October 2020

During Chalk the Walk, three professional artists created Fall and Halloween-themed chalk murals in the Upper Millyard Amphitheater. Members of the community had the opportunity to watch the artists create these murals and also create chalk drawings of their own.  #ChalktheWalkAmesbury. Photography by Wendy Bush.

It's Electric - Summer 2020

In summer 2020, the Amesbury Cultural Council launched a public art initiative to paint the necessary, but not very attractive, electrical boxes around town. The plain-Jane dropbox outside City Hall? That could use a creative coat of paint as well.  We selected 10 artists to paint the electrical boxes around the theme "The Art of Community." Photography by Laura Kozlowski.
