About Public Art GSO

Public Art GSO was created and developed by Action Greensboro and is now owned and operated by the Public Art Endowment. Action Greensboro, in collaboration with a number of other local organizations dedicated to enhancing Greensboro’s quality of life, recognized the need for an online destination for Greensboro residents and visitors to discover the city’s vast collection of public art. After building the site, Action Greensboro gifted Public Art GSO to the Public Art Endowment to maintain and update the site as the collection of public art in Greensboro continues to grow.
