One of the best things about Augusta: it’s an amazing arts destination with an abundance of art. Visitors and locals have so many artistic experiences to choose from every month including concerts, galleries, live theater, open mics, museums, and all kinds of night life choices from the hottest bars to the finest restaurants. Then there are our renowned festivals… we have numerous annual festivals that feature arts, music, culture, food, and literature. Our public art includes painted traffic boxes, an art cart that you can use to park your bike and charge your cellphone, fun murals and historic sculptures.
The Arts Council organizes opportunities and events for artists and art lovers, including one of the South’s largest arts festivals, Arts in the Heart of Augusta Festival. It’s a 2 1/2 day celebration of the varied arts and cultural diversity that make up Augusta. Other annual events include the Wet Paint Party and Art Sale and the Arts Awards dinner.
