RIVERARTES: THE ART OF PLACEMAKING, a project organized by the Owensboro Museum of Fine Art, was designed to acquire a collection of public art for the City of Owensboro and other stakeholders in the City’s placemaking efforts. Monumental works of outdoor art in bronze, stone, aluminum, steel and glass, comprise the collection of works by internationally recognized sculptors, installed throughout the downtown area and in suburban medical centers surrounding the City. Most of the collection was selected from a decade of invitational exhibitions held at the Owensboro Museum of Fine Art.
RIVERARTES is an outreach program of the Owensboro Museum of Fine Art which is desgned to broaden the scope of the community’s access to the visual arts. Since its inception the program has acquired eleven works of public art.
