The Decatur Arts Alliance brings a full-spectrum arts experience to the community every day through outdoor installations, live music, art events and festivals, community classes, and exhibitions – all freely available to the public. We work directly with artists and invest in creating a city where they thrive.

Outdoor Installations

We are so proud of the beautiful sculptures, murals, and outdoor installations that have become such an integral part of life in Decatur. These projects are commissioned through regular call-for-artists and direct partnerships.

Busking

Live performances bring music and magic around the city every day through our busking program with the City of Decatur. The program encourages street performers and emerging artists to showcase their talents and contribute to a lively street culture. We welcome new faces to apply!
