THOMASVILLE, Ga. (WALB) - The city of Thomasville held a ribbon cutting ceremony downtown for a once vacant lot in that is now being used for public art.  

The center is called the 'Unvacant Lot', which will house a variety of public art work.

Thomasville Center for the Arts will use this lot as a learning laboratory and showcase art in the area.

Darlene Taylor, Public Art and Exhibition Director, says she believes this provides something unique to downtown. 

"It was a natural walkway into the amphitheater and we have Building 209 across the other side so it was kind of like our connection to the community," said Taylor.  

The exhibition will be used to represent wildlife.

10 students from Brookwood High School made the 'Tree Hugger' sculptures, in efforts to involve the community in as many ways as they can.

Taylor said the artwork will change each season so the community always has something new to experience and be a part of.
