Public art helps us celebrate our heritage, communicate our direction, and characterize our sense of place. Public art can be used to activate space and invigorate our community. Thoughtfully implemented art can define Moline and convey our spirit and energy to ourselves and our visitors.
The Downtown Moline Public Art Master Plan can help unite our city by defining and projecting our essence to the world. Our plan will set the standard for how we begin to implement and enjoy public art throughout downtown while also celebrating our community’s spirit and artistic expressions.
Art provides meaning to our public spaces, reflects the history of our city, adds uniqueness to our neighborhoods, and humanizes our built environment. Public art provides the intersection between our past, present, and future, and also has the power to transform our city. An investment in public art creates a gain in social, economic, and cultural value.
Anyone who lives, works, or spends time in the City of Moline is encouraged to be involved in shaping the Downtown Moline Public Art Master Plan. Here’s how:
December 2019 – February 2020: Information Gathering and Research, Project Planning
March – May 2020: Community Input Gathering
June – July 2020: Master Plan Writing
May 2020: Community Review of Recommendations
Summer 2020: Community Presentation of Final Downtown Moline Public Art Master Plan

Please join Renew Moline for a virtual walk and talk about public art in public space around downtown Moline. Our Designing Local team will lead us virtually through seven downtown sites to review existing conditions and dream big about how public art could benefit each space. There are four opportunities to participate in Zoom events during which the audience will be polled for their ideas for each site.
Please only sign up for one Virtual Walk and Talk About Public Art. Capacity limited to 20 participants for each event.
Can’t make one of these allotted times? The first walk and talk about will be recorded and a link will be created for you to provide your input as well. Check back on the Renew Moline site after October 21, 2020.
Not comfortable with Zoom? Download a self guided walk and talk about map and questionnaire HERE and return it to the Renew Moline offices upon completion.
