Public Art

Mobile ArtGO!

Mobile ArtGO! (GO = Gallery Outdoors) is a database of public art found throughout the greater Mobile area on mobileartgo.com. Through this website, one will find photos and information about Mobile's plethora of murals, sculptures, and art installations, as well as an interactive Google map pinpointing the exact location of these artworks. There is also a printed ArtGO! trifold map (available at our gallery while supplies last), in addition to a downloadable file on the website.
This project was spearheaded by Leadership Mobile's 2017 Arts & Culture Team, and is kept updated by the Mobile Arts Council's staff and volunteers. The map and website were created by Holdenquinn and the Mobile County Health Department.
If you are interested in assisting with updates to this program, please contact Lucy Gafford at director@mobilearts.org. We are wanting to print new brochures are are always in need of volunteers to help document new artworks!
