Huntsville City Hall Art Tours, every 2nd Saturday

Huntsville City Hall Art Tours, every 2nd Saturday

Arts Huntsville invites the community to explore the artistic heart of Huntsville’s new City Hall with “Second Saturday” art tours showcasing the building’s public art installations. These docent-led tours will take place at 10:30 am on June 8, July 13, and August 10, 2024, offering a first-hand look at the dynamic artworks that grace the halls of Huntsville’s new municipal headquarters.

Experience Art with Local Artists

Each “Second Saturday” City Hall art tour will be led by a knowledgeable docent and feature special guest appearances by two talented local artists whose work is on display. This unique opportunity allows visitors to gain deeper insights into the creative vision behind each piece and engage with the artists themselves.

  • June 8: Meet Guadalupe Lanning Robinson and Jahni Moore. Explore the cultural tapestry of Robinson’s “Cityscape Block by Block” and delve into Huntsville’s past with Moore’s “Miracle Territory,” crafted with Huntsville’s very own red clay.
  • July 13: Join award-winning painters Ann Moeller and Yuri Ozaki. Soar above the city with Ozaki’s “Downtown Huntsville” and discover the stories Moeller brings to life in “The Spark.”
  • August 10: Be greeted by Cynthia Wagner and David Nuttall. Stroll by the eleven panels of Wagner’s “Transformative Soil: Terra Firma” while discovering the iconic symbols woven into her work and learn about Nuttall’s upcoming installation of a hand-drawn nighttime map of Huntsville.

“We look forward to providing the community with opportunities to experience this incredible art collection in City Hall,” said Jennifer Johnson, Public Art Program Manager at Arts Huntsville. “Through these tours, the public can gain deeper insight and appreciation into the artworks and connect with some of the artists behind them.”
Space is limited to 50 participants per tour, so be sure to reserve your spot early.
