Public Art Implementation Plan
Your Community. Your Voice. Your Public Art.
Following on the Arts and Culture Master Plan, the city is looking for the best opportunities to bring an artful touch to Dunwoody's public spaces, gathering places and projects. The first step is a survey to gather ideas from all who live or work in Dunwoody. The survey will help the planning team understand the community’s goals and how art projects can support them.
The deadline for responses is May 24, 2020.

In October 2018, the City of Dunwoody completed its Create Dunwoody Arts and Culture Master Plan, which stated that arts, culture and placemaking can be economic drivers and civic catalysts, while providing educational benefits and cultural legacies for the community. Two of the key recommendations were to step up public art and placemaking projects.
The City has hired Todd Bressi, a consultant who specializes in public art, placemaking and urban design, and who has worked in a variety of Georgia communities, to help identify actionable opportunities that best meet Dunwoody’s needs. During the course of his research, he will be consulting with arts, business and civic organizations in a variety of ways, including this survey. Working with the city, he will also organize a pilot project that will demonstrate that Dunwoody’s placemaking efforts are already underway.
