Public Arts Advisory Board

The Public Arts Advisory Board is comprised of up to five appointed residents, a staff liaison and a liaison from Town Council. The Board advises and makes recommendations to the Central Business District Committee regarding the promotion, support and value of public artwork as a means to beautify Christiansburg and promote creative place making within public spaces.
