And while there’s plenty of art hanging in galleries of the Fayetteville Underground, or resting on the living room walls of local homes, there’s also an abundance of it lining the streets and adorning the walls of the buildings if you know where to look.
We recently went on a little walking tour to check out some of the public art in downtown Fayetteville, and here’s what we found.
Just around the corner for the Fayetteville Town Center hangs a series of murals by Fayetteville artist Matt Miller titled Universal Inquiry
The 88-foot mural was installed by Miller in 2011, and was paid for in part by a $5,000 grant from the Fayetteville Advertising and Promotion Commission.
The mural spans the top of the parking deck that serves the Town Center and other businesses in the downtown area, and is visible from the alleyway that accesses Jammin’ Java.
A monument dedicated to the memory of a local family that was tragically killed in a car accident is located not far from the square on Fayetteville’s Frisco Trail.
City Fragments, also called the Hoover Monument, is a piece by local artist Steve Hoover, who died in the accident along with his wife Sharon, son Paul, and daughter-in-law Maureen.
The sculpture was installed in 2008 in memory of the family, thanks in part to the efforts of Maureen’s co-worker, Randy Werner, who found the sculpture outside Steve’s studio, had it restored, and worked with the city to have it installed.
The sculpture sits on the east side of the trail, just south of Center Street in downtown Fayetteville.
