Public Art

Murals, sculptures, fountains, and flames are among the art pieces you’ll see showcased along city streets, urban trails, on 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. In April 2018, the city unveiled its 22nd public art piece. Thirteen of the pieces – at least – are in a proximity that’s easily walkable within the city’s downtown core.

Many thanks to the 2010-11 APSU Urban Planning class and advisor Dr. Becky Starnes for their excellent work on this project!
