Takin’ It To The Streets public art day

Wilson Downtown Development has enjoyed organizing this event
for the past three years and partnering last year with the Arts Council of Wilson to co-coordinate.

We are happy to announce that, moving forward,
PAINT-A-HYDRANT and the TAKIN’ IT TO THE STREETS public art event

On Saturday, April 27th, Historic Downtown Wilson celebrated its 2nd annual public art day. A collaboration between Wilson Downtown Development, the Arts Council of Wilson, Vollis Simpson Whirligig Park, and Eyes on Main Street, the all-day event showcased public art throughout the downtown.  A multitude of activities included Paint-A-Hydrant, Artsy Alleys, a blues concert at the Whirligig Park, and the launch of the 2019 Eyes on Main Street outdoor photo festival.
