Take the Marietta Public Art Tour
The City of Marietta has provided a self-guided virtual tour of sculptures and murals all around the city. Many of these works can be viewed while traversing the scenic Mountain to River Trail just outside the square. From modernist metal sculptures to colorful murals, you’ll find that art is all around us in Marietta!
Visit Our Local Galleries and Enjoy First Fridays
Our upscale art galleries are sure to fit the bill for any contemporary art extraordinaire. Venture into DK Gallery, Muse and Co and The Loft to enjoy brilliant abstract works, surreal portraiture and everything in between. Be sure to come to the square for First Fridays each month for gallery openings and other fun festivities!
Join a Class at the Marietta Cobb Museum of Art
On top of hosting a collection of compelling artwork for visitors to view, the Marietta Cobb Museum of Art also offers classes for those eager to pick up a paintbrush or make their own clay dishware. Their current course offerings include pottery classes for different skill levels, plein air drawing and acrylic painting for teens and adults.
Host Your Own Paint & Sip Night
Making art is even more fun when done among friends! First, choose a picture for you and your guests to copy. Then, gather your materials: canvases, brushes, and a variety of different paints. And what would any Paint & Sip be without something to drink? Look no further than the Marietta Wine Market for a selection of fabulous wines to share with your friends. From Cabernet Sauvignons to Chardonnays, they have a flavor for everyone at your function.
