mission and purpose:

It is the purpose and intent of the City of Maryville to promote and expand the opportunities for its citizens to experience public art and creative expression.

In October of 2013, the City of Maryville executed an agreement with SculptureOne of Sioux Falls, SD to consult and assist us in developing our public art program.

The following January of 2014, the City officially organized the Maryville Public Art Committee (MPAC) to advise on all matters concerning public art. In conjunction with SculptureOne and the City of Maryville, MPAC annually selects and installs artwork throughout the Downtown courthouse square.

It is also the duty of MPAC to stimulate public interest in art and expand art education in the community. MPAC will offer school tours and other educational programs for Maryville and Nodaway County.
