Public Art

A community Wide Commitment

ArtSpot is the public art subcommittee of Johns Creek Beautification. It is dedicated to placing art in public outdoor spaces to strengthen and enrich the identity and culture of the City of Johns Creek. Since the creation of the city in 2007, many individuals and groups have devoted countless hours to enhancing the local cultural options for the Johns Creek community and its visitors. Johns Creek can boast of a world class symphony, top rated arts centerarts fairsdance studios and local theater groups.

Why would people dedicate so many hours to the arts? Public art adds liveliness to a community. Streets and parks come alive when public spaces seem more personal. These spaces reflect community values, and they can spark civic dialogue. Public art programs – and arts programs in general – are a reflection of who we are as a community and our desire to continue to grow and learn.

About Us

Botanical Horse Sculpture

Coming 2021

Roundabout Bell and Boles Roads

Construction on our first permanent art installation will begin this year. Created out of metal and composed of vines, leaves, flowers, and other botanicals woven together in the image of a powerful horse, the sculpture will be placed at the center of the roundabout at Bell and Boles Roads. Eric Strauss was chosen to create the piece because of his unique artistic style and his connections to the Johns Creek community. Eric grew up on a farm in the Shakerag area and is very excited to create this special piece for the city. Eric finds inspiration in imagery from the earth and combines it with his hand-forged steel to create a unique juxtaposition between nature and industrialization. After discovering sculpture at Georgia Southern, Eric studied art in Cortona, Italy, eventually returning home to Atlanta to open a studio. He gained recognition with his 2006 Booth Museum of Art exhibit. His pieces can be found in private and public art collections across America and Europe.

When this happens, it's usually because the owner only shared it with a small group of people, changed who can see it or it's been deleted.
