21 Places to Take a Selfie

Posted by:Michelle Dickerson on Tuesday, February 13, 2018

Clarksville unveiled its 21st public art piece this month. Twelve of the pieces – at least – are in a proximity that’s easily walkable within the city’s downtown core.

Murals, sculptures, fountains, and flames are among the art pieces you’ll see showcased along city streets, urban trails, buildings and throughout the campus of Austin Peay State University, which is adjacent to downtown. Many of the works were designed or created by Clarksville artists.

For the sake of space, here are six, but click over to www.visitclarksvilletn.com/planyourstay/public-art to read about and see all 21.
