Public Art & Sculpture Map
As the City of Sterling Heights continues to grow its increasingly impressive public art collection, the City’s IT Department created an app called “Art Map” that uses GIS technology to identify the location of all major pieces of public art commissioned by the City in an easy-to-use digital format. The Art Map is accessible here or by downloading the City of Sterling Heights’ phone app Sterling Connect in the Apple, Android or Google Play store.
Supporters of the Arts
Art supporters such as the Sterling Heights Cultural Commission, Friends of the Sterling Heights Library and the Sterling Heights Community Foundation work to foster an appreciation of the arts for years to come.
