Paris. New York. Berlin. Hattiesburg. These four cities have something in common. Each is on a list of 11 cities in the world recognized as leaders in public art

Hattiesburg was included in the list in Travel and Leisure magazine thanks to  the many murals and sculptures found throughout the city.

“Home to more than 40 public art installations including murals, sculpture and brightly painted utility boxes, Hattiesburg is committed to making art available to all its citizens,” the article says.

The list of 11 cities also includes Miami, Vancouver and Cape Town, South Africa. Only four U.S. cities were named to the list. The fourth city is Philadelphia. 

The cities were chosen from “a study of art in cities around the world by money.co.uk based its results in part on a count of Instagram posts and street art searches,” the magazine said.

“To be one of four cities in North America included on a list that speaks about public art in places like New York City, Paris and Berlin is just a single example of the talent and creativity that exists right here in Hattiesburg,” Hattiesburg Mayor Toby Barker said in a statement. “Public art is a rising star in our community, thanks to many who have gone before us and the Hattiesburg Alliance for Public Art’s steady leadership.”
