ARTivation aims to bring new energy to downtown’s pedestrian experience and create another avenue for creativity in our downtown community. The Downtown Raleigh Alliance is committed to encouraging and producing public art to enhance the public realm in an effort to create a thriving city center.
ARTivation is spearheaded by the Downtown Raleigh Alliance with support from Artspace and Artsplosure. Sponsored by Hampton Inn & Suites Downtown Raleigh Glenwood South, AT&T North Carolina, Carpenter Development, Deco Raleigh and William Peace University.
Seven artists have been selected to enliven seven storefronts with temporary paint or a vinyl image.
