New Hope Arts Public Arts Program

Public Arts Program

20TH ANNIVERSARY 2003-2023

The New Hope Arts Public Arts Program is a free, accessible, cultural, and recreational asset featuring installations along the roadways and paths of historic New Hope.

Started by New Hope Arts founder Robin Larsen in 2003, the program continued to grow under the leadership of NHArts Executive Director Carol Cruickshanks. With a generous grant from PNC Foundation, it became PNC Arts Alive from 2015 to 2016. Today, the Program continues its sculpture mission with the support of private donors and sponsors. From mid-2022 through 2023 alone, a dedicated group of volunteers and staff nearly doubled the size of the newly-named Public Arts Program

"By sharing the work of contemporary, primarily regional artists publicly, we offer the public opportunities to find joy in, and sometimes surprising glimpses of sculptures in and around the borough." Pamm Kerr, volunteer chairperson of the New Hope Arts Public Arts Committee.
