Interested in joining our mailing list to receive all the latest news and information on upcoming Chestertown Public Arts events?


Public art will soon grace every corner of Chestertown, from its historic waterfront to its newest parks at the edges of town.  Anchored by the recently donated extraordinary Woicke Collection of 24 contemporary sculptures, Chestertown’s public art will embody our community’s belief that innovative, meaningful, and playful artworks can bring people together to share experiences of wonder and reflection.   7 of the 24 Woicke Collection sculptures are planned to be installed in 2022 with the remaining sculptures planned for installation in 2023 and 2024.

Keep an eye out for beautiful art as you explore our town, or take a walking tour and learn more about it!
