About the Project

An interactive digital catalogue, ArtSites New Haven illustrates, locates, and describes outdoor public art throughout the city—from Long Wharf to East Rock, from UNH to the New Haven Green—providing a dynamic experience of New Haven's rich legacy of visual arts.

Accessible by a URL link from any mobile device, tablet or computer, ArtSites features an interactive map of New Haven, pinpointing the location of outdoor art all over the city.

Created to inform and encourage tourists and residents to explore the city's public spaces, ArtSites includes works owned by local universities, art commissioned by the city, Site Projects' extraordinary commissions over the past ten years including Felice Varini's delightful and much-acclaimed mural Square with four circles, as well as monuments and privately owned artworks in public space.

Over time, the ArtSites catalogue will grow to encompass as many of these works as we can identify—and more, as they are added to our city—creating a compelling narrative that refreshes our experience of urban life.

The Walking Tour

The Audio Tour

Site Projects, in partnership with WNHH, New Haven Independent Radio Station will now create a complimentary public art audio tour with New Haven high school students. 

ArtSites offers tourists and residents, students and teachers an essential tool to learn of the remarkable history, outstanding artists, and visionary leaders who have fundamentally shaped the public arena in New Haven.

Participating students will be actively involved in the expansion of this valuable community resource. The audio tour will further facilitate self-guided tours and students will have the opportunity to become the spokespeople for our city and for our culture.

The program began in May 2016 with our inaugural presenter from New Light High School. Beginning in full force in Fall 2016, this six-week audio tour program will occur twice annually.
