Explore the Waynesville Public Art Trail, a self-guided tour of outdoor art celebrating the cultural heritage and natural wonders of the Southern Appalachians in the heart of Western North Carolina.
The Waynesville Public Art Trail meanders through three distinct downtown districts with a bonus audio tour and family scavenger hunt. Along the way, you’ll find unique art galleries, boutiques, coffee shops, restaurants, breweries and plenty of shady benches.
The self-guided tour of 17 public art pieces takes two to three hours by following the walking tour outlined here. Or, explore the trail in sections using the interactive map below.
Waynesville’s public art contributes to our collective identity, highlights our unique sense of place, and creates beauty in our public spaces. We invite you to explore, ponder, and reflect on the shared experience of public art.
