Summer Jam Art Spots
We’re not just a summer arts and music festival Summer Jam works year round in our commitment to bring public art to the Hilltop. Each year we’ll be installing a major piece of public art that encompasses what we’re all about. We’ve also begun to collect “mini-murals”, 4′ X 8′ art panels, painted by our very own Hilltop artists. On this page you’ll find out where we’ve placed them and the stories behind them.
