Public Art in Fort Myers

The city of Fort Myers’ public art collection dates back to 1913 and today includes 68 outdoor artworks.  These pieces serve as familiar landmarks for local residents, but many who pass by them regularly don’t know much about their rich history and the meanings behind them.  We’ll embark on a closer exploration of public art in Fort Myers and the importance of public art with the city’s public art consultant, author, historian and journalist Tom Hall.  We’ll also speak Eric Feinstein who created the mobile app Otocast.  The city’s public art committee has subscribed to this free app, which facilitates users’ self-guided tours highlighting Fort Myers public art collection.
