Midland is dedicated to enhancing arts and culture as an important part of the community. The Town recognizes that Public Art enhances the places where we live, work, and play. Public Art can transform areas into vibrant, inviting and meaningful public spaces. Midland is known as a mural community and also has sculptures in public spaces.
Learn about and explore Midland’s rich culture and history through our public art. Enjoy murals and sculptures in our downtown, waterfront and in some of our parks.
