New sculptures on the Danville Art Trail

By  | 

DANVILLE, Va. (WDBJ7) Visitors to the Danville River District may notice a few public art changes around town. The Danville Art Trail has eight brand new pieces.

The final piece was placed on the Danville Museum of Art and Natural History lawn Friday.

The Parks and Recreation Department says the trail is a good way to get people out, while also experiencing art without a cost.

“Public art can be experienced by anyone. You don’t have to pay a fee to get that cultural experience. If you can walk up to it, you can experience it. If you can drive past it, you can experience it," Emily Ragsdale with Danville Parks and Recreation said.

The eight new pieces will be on display for 18 months. Two of the original seven pieces do remain on the trail.
