Be on the lookout in our parks for local art, produced by local artists.  It is The Great ARTdoors - a partnership between 40 North, Urbana Arts and Culture Program, Champaign Park District and the Spurlock Museum.

The goal of The Great ARTdoors is to inspire discussion, engagement, a sense of belonging and reflect humanity. 

Look for The Great ARTdoors works of art in the following Urbana Park District Parks:

  • Chief Shemauger Park
  • Crystal Lake Park
  • Victory Park
  • South Ridge Park

Other Urbana locations include the Lierman Neighborhood Community Garden and Urbana City Building.

The project is also committed to compensating and validating local artists, prioritizing underserved communities, and ensuring accessibility for all.
