CCAD Art Walk

About the project: 

  • A new partnership between Valdosta Main Street and the Annette Howell Turner Center for the Arts is drawing attention to the Valdosta City Center Arts District and providing year-round opportunities for Valdosta residents to engage the District. Funded by a More Than Murals grant through the Georgia Council for the Arts, the partnership promotes strong connections between artists, arts organizations, downtown businesses, and the public.
  • The one-mile Art Walk outlines a path of sidewalk art and other public art along Webster Street, N. Ashley Street, E. Hill Avenue, and N. Patterson Street. Sidewalk art was painted by artist Taylor Shaw, who also recently created a few other art pieces on Main Street. Stanchions strategically placed along the Art Walk path provide a QR code that directs people to the CCAD webpage and upcoming events taking place in the District

About the City Center Arts District: 

  •  Founded October 6th, 2016
  • The purpose for this district was to create a foundation for defining a sense of place attract new and visiting populations integrate the visions of community and business leaders and contribute to the development of a skilled workforce. It is a desire for the Public Art Advisory Committee (PAAC) to establish the first Arts District in the City of Valdosta known as the City Center Arts Districts (CCAD).
