ARTS AND CULTURE
Rome has a strong love for the arts, and it’s evident around almost any corner. From murals to sculptures to unique annual or limited-time creations, color and joy can be found anywhere. Especially in our charming downtown, you’ll see a few of these pieces, as well as the occasional art installation in the form of crochet or sidewalk art. Thanks to the Rome Area Council for the Arts enabling local artists, these moments of creativity are present between multiple cultural events. This includes performances from the oldest symphony in the south, the Rome Symphony Orchestra, and productions from two theatre companies, the Rome Little Theatre and the River Arts District Playhouse. Our town is also rich in history, which is available to the public thanks to The Rome Area History Museum, the Chieftains Museum, and Oak Hill & Martha Berry Museum. No matter when and where you’re in our town, you’ll always be able to find something inspiring.
