Decatur has always been an artist haven. There are many studios and galleries around the city and art can be seen not just in store fronts but on walls, down alleyways, with public sculptures and, for the past couple of years, on traffic signal boxes. The Decatur Arts Alliance and Fishbone Art teamed up to select local and regional artists to add color to the city and paint these usual eyesores around the city. A interactive map for the boxes can be found here… https://www.fishboneartdecatur.com/box-locations Come take a look at some of the fun art around the city!
