A public art display has been installed on city-owned property in downtown Flowery Branch, across from City Hall.

Two paintings and an enlarged photo have been staked into the ground off Church Street between West Pine Street and West Chestnut Street, with a city public works crew finishing the task last week.

The city worked with Vision 2030’s public art committee on the effort has posted a sign giving the group credit, City Manager Bill Andrew said.

Vision 2030 is a Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce initiative.

“We’re looking forward to working with them in the future and hoping to see more public art in coordination with our redevelopment of Flowery Branch here in Old Town,” Andrew said.

The public art committee has organized several projects, including the Brenau Urban Rural Discovery Secrets, or BURDS, that donors can sponsor. The small gold bird sculptures are located around the county.

Frank Norton Jr., the chair of the committee, said projects have been picking up this spring.

“There’s momentum for public art accelerating, and that’s a great thing for our community,” Norton has said.
