Public Art is popping up all across the country, through permanent exhibits, temporary shows, and commissioned works! To support this trend and encourage participation by artists in their public art ventures we are compiling a Calls for Artists list focused on Public Art. Please refer to our main Calls for Artists page for all other artwork calls. Do you have a call you would like to promote? Please email Liz Montgomery at firstname.lastname@example.org.
