Interactive Art

The City of Sanford and the Appearance Commission have developed several interactive art installations around Sanford.

The purpose of interactive art is to engage the spectator to create a deeper sense of connection, offer an opportunity for introspection, and remove any doubts that art is for everyone.

Whether the spectator becomes part of the art, moves the art, adds to the art, or goes in search of the art, being involved in public art leaves a lasting impression that will affect the spectator for years to come.

Before I Die Wall

Share your thoughts, ideas, and dreams with passersby by recording them on our Before I Die wall, which is located right in the heart of the Downtown shopping district. The installation is stocked often with chalk.
