Color It In Public Art
Color It In: Downtown Public Art Works
Downtown Bridgeport is a commercial area that represents and serves a diverse tapestry of the wider Bridgeport community.
The public parks and independently owned restaurants and shops that populate the street-level spaces in our neighborhood create connection points that foster the sense of community so special to the Downtown and the city. The murals in our neighborhood add to that sense of community by celebrating the full spectrum of Downtown and its beautiful and vibrant overlapping forms, shapes, and colors that intersect through its people, streets, places, and spaces. We hope you will explore and enjoy these public art destinations. Check out the artworks listed below, or access this walking guide to take your own tour of Downtown Bridgeport public art!
