Art Happens is an interactive public art project developed by The Westmoreland Museum of American Art and located in Greensburg’s central business district. In partnership with the Greensburg Community Development Corporation (GCDC) and the City of Greensburg, this community project will place select details of the Museum’s collection directly into the city where people live, work, and play.
Working with Blue Sky Sign Co., Art Happens provides opportunities for residents and visitors alike to enjoy these “random acts of art.” And, if you take a selfie with your favorite image (and use #arthappensproject), you can visit the Museum to view the original artwork with our compliments. While you are there, purchase an Art Happens button, bumper sticker or T-shirt in our Museum Shop and spread the love.
Works of art will be featured at over a dozen sites, so set out on your own art scavenger hunt (see below for a map of the current sites). In addition, you can attend one of our “Happenings” as area artists, writers, musicians and dancers will be invited to present their own inspiration at several of the Art Happens sites during Greensburg ArtsWalk on April 14, 2018. And, if you are an artist interested in presenting a “Happening,” visit thewestmoreland.org/opportunities for more information.
