Cary Public Art: A New Series

Cary, NC — We see them everywhere, yet we don’t know the stories behind them or the hands that made them.

Each piece of public art in Cary has it’s own unique story and we will be uncovering and sharing them straight from the source.

The Series

The Cary Public Art series, with the help of Cary’s Public Art Supervisor, Denise Dickens, will aim to shine a light on the unique tales and talents behind the art that Caryites walk and drive past daily. Ever wonder about the downtown benches? How about art dedicated to Cary’s historic figures? Can’t forget the abstract designs too and what about the art that’s in the works and not even made public yet?

We’ll be taking a deeper look into it all.

‘The Little Newsboy’ statue at Academy and Chatham is currently dressed up for the Cary Graduates Together event in downtown.

    My favorite art is probably the silver horse in the garden behind the Page-Walker house.

    My least favorite is the burnt project now in Kay S’s park.

    I’m okay with most of the art. I really love about 10% of it, but I understand that other people like a different 10%, and my own taste changes over time. I’m okay with paying my taxes to buy art even if I don’t like it all.
