“Love Where You Live” Heart Project
The Cultural Arts Council Douglasville/ Douglas County (CAC) is proud to present the new public art project, “Love Where you Live.”  Artists were invited to submit designs based upon the theme, Love Where You Live in Douglasville and Douglas County.  With creative designs from artists, fiberglass hand-painted hearts will roam the Douglasville/Douglas County community inspired by the Love Where You Live public art project which seeks to celebrate the bond between the community and the local businesses. These colorful, original sculptures will be designed as an artistic focal point reflecting the community’s values, history, and bond. In addition, these sculptures will be a tourism driver and a selfie destination spot in high traffic areas. This public art project features 14 fiberglass heart sculptures throughout the community painted by local artists.

Stay tuned for more to come on the “Hunt For Hearts” contest during the month of February.

Art On Loan
The CAC works with local businesses to provide a transitional gallery for the public. Individual artists loan collections of their work to various locations so they can be enjoyed and viewed by the community as they were intended.
Current Exhibits include: Carol Collins featured at Water and Sewer Authority, Jane Daniel featured at City Hall, and Linda Britt featured at the Lithia Springs Senior Center.
