COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - The fourth annual Artbeat, spotlighting public art in Columbus, will be March 19 to April 1. Artbeat is a two-week annual event for residents and visitors to celebrate the arts.

ArtBeat 2015 features the new and the old, the traditional and the modern, the hidden gems and the bold pieces of art. These sculptures, add a vibrancy and liveliness to the Uptown streetscape.

This year's event also provides the opportunity to find out why Columbus is known as the Fountain City. More than two dozen fountains are scattered throughout Uptown, each with its own story serving as a reminder of the rich history of the arts in Columbus. Also featured this year is Midtown's most famous fountain, the Lenora Starling fountain, located at the intersection of Wynnton Road and Buena Vista.

An opening reception will take place on March 19th, at 5p.m. in the CB&T Turner Courtyard on Broadway. During the evening, there will be music, special entertainment and public art tours.
