Programs Supporting Art in the Public Realm
PROGRAMS SUPPORTING ART IN THE PUBLIC REALM

Americans for the Arts and the Barr Foundation share the findings of a National Scan of Programs Supporting Art in the Public Realm. The scan highlights overarching themes and offers snapshots of 30 programs supporting and building capacity for artists to work in the public realm.
