Springfield, Missouri boasts over 50 public art sites throughout the city including sculpture, murals, beautiful historic buildings and creative arts spaces.

In 2006, the Arts Council released the Public Art of Springfield, Missouri brochure that maps 45 public art sites. Since then there have been changes to the urban landscape and the Springfield Public Art blog SpringfieldArts.com is now working to update this list and to document and promote public art and artists in the region including an online public art map.

For the printed brochure, please download the public art brochure or pick one up at the Springfield Regional Arts Council office in the Creamery Arts Center, 411 N. Sherman Pkwy, Springfield, MO (417) 862-2787.
