Cary Visual Art seeks to involve members of the community through outreach and educational programs. Educational, artist-led workshops, artist residencies, informative and timely lectures, scholarships, sculpture tours and festivals are ways we successfully engage the public in our programs. Sponsorship and giving opportunities are available for each of our programs and we encourage you to view our calendar frequently to keep up with our various activities. The Sculpture on Loan program was born in response to the need of an all-inclusive art community, promoting both local artists and enriching the lives of every citizen in the Cary community.


"Public art has been a wonderful way for our community to create a sense of place, tell a story, develop and maintain an identity. It shows that this community cares about where we live, work and play"  - Ralph Ashworth, Founding Member
