OPTIC is a 10-day public art event in Downtown Raleigh, highlighting international and local muralists, installation artists, and video artists. The 2017 festival will be held October 5-14, 2017. OPTIC's goal is to become an annual event that highlights our state's inherent confluence of artistry and technology. Our team came together when a group of community organizers, arts leaders, and artists realized they were all focused on the same mission of bringing more public art to Raleigh. It is clear that public art projects have become a vital and exciting expression of creativity. The community has set a priority for accessible public art.
