Rockville has much public art! Want to learn about the art around you? Peerless Rockville invites the public to join us for a free, narrated, photographic tour of public works of art in the City. This unique presentation by Dr. Teresa Lachin will feature highlights of the City’s outstanding Art in Public Places (AIPP) program, launched in 1978, which boasts numerous works of art through Rockville’s parks, public spaces, neighborhoods, and Town Center. Over the last 40 years, AIPP has worked to enhance Rockville’s public spaces with traditional and conventional pieces as well as abstract, modern, and post-modern works. This visual tour celebrates some well-known (“Spirit of Rockville” in Courthouse Square), some controversial (the now-relocated Confederate statue), and others hiding in plain sight (“Rockville” in Monument Park).
Located in the F. Scott Fitzgerald Theatre Social Hall.
