Art is a magical thing. In Rome, we believe in nurturing the arts in our community. It only adds to the vibrancy of our already gorgeous downtown! See for yourself some of the wonderful art currently on display!
Downtown Colorful Crosswalk
Part of an effort to add vibrancy downtown, while also enhancing our pedestrian zones, this is the first of several planned color crosswalk this year!
This group of clandestine crocheters and knitters gathered together to add beauty to ordinary objects around our community in what has become a beloved part of downtown life.
Rome Community HeART Project
The Rome Area Council for the Arts (RACA) partnered with Redmond Regional Medical Center to bring a community art project to Rome for the month of February. Local concrete artist, Bill Thornton, created each sculpture (or HeART) as a hollow form covered with a skim of concrete. Using the medium of their choice, local artists have taken the HeARTs and truly created unique pieces of art, conveying a message of heart health awareness.
