New Providence Public Art (NPPA) 2015

Mission Statement: It is the aim of New Providence Public Art (NPPA) to enrich the quality of life in our community by bringing outdoor sculptures to New Providence to be enjoyed by everyone.

By exhibiting public art in specific locations throughout the Borough we seek to enhance our environment aesthetically. By doing so, we believe, the cultural and artistic aspects of our community will be strengthened. A vibrant outdoor art program will benefit all in the community and add a new dimension to our open spaces.
