The Waynesville Public Art Trail is a collection of public art installations found throughout the town of Waynesville. Each piece of work on the trail was either commissioned by the Waynesville Public Art Commission or donated by a private entity. The Town of Waynesville is rich in artistic and cultural capital, and the Waynesville Public Art Commission serves to promote the town throughout the region and to those who travel here from around the globe.
The Waynesville Public Art Trail incorporates all of Waynesville’s public art pieces into a self-guided public walking tour that is accessible via phone. The trail takes the visitor to each public art installation with a guided narration of the piece’s history accompanied by original music that is unique for each art piece.
Visitors to Waynesville will be able to see a variety of different styles of art installations throughout the town including celebrations of local wildlife, the annual Folkmoot Festival, the North Carolina state dog—the Plott Hound—and our universal desire to explore.
The tour can be enjoyed for free by visiting the Waynesville Public Art Commission’s mobile-friendly website that will guide visitors through historic downtown Main Street, Frog Level, and Hazelwood. Visitors can also purchase a walking tour book to aid them as they enjoy the trail.
