The Harrisonburg Downtown Art Walk is a resource for locals and visitors alike to engage with public art. Public art provides access to beauty and imagination; things that everyone should be able to enjoy for free. Harrisonburg has long supported a thriving artistic community, and nearly 30 local murals, mosaics, and sculptures are a testament to that. The art walk exists to share the talent of our local artists, the importance of the businesses and organizations who support them, and inspiration to all who pass through it. Thank you for participating in this creative community, and please enjoy.

This guide is the product of Kyle Kirby, with design help on the physical brochure from Wren Snyder. Kyle is a graduate of James Madison University, with a bachelor’s degree in Writing, Rhetoric, & Technical Communication. A multi-faceted artist himself, Kyle is happy and proud to have been able to combine his passions for art, writing, and people, in order to provide the Downtown Art Walk as a foundational art resource to the Downtown Harrisonburg community.
