 About This Webinar 

February 20th, 2020 at 3:00 PM EST

There is very little national data about the development of public art projects. Common questions that arise are around budget sizes and expenditures, and funding mechanisms to name a few. During this webinar, data points culled from 1,767 applications submitted through PAN Year in Review over the past decade will help provide a national perspective to these questions. Focusing on applications for public art projects located in the United States, the Americans for the Arts Research team in collaboration with the Public Art and Civic Design program staff have pulled observational data points relating to budgets sizes and expenditures, public and private funding types, permanent and temporary project types, and the kinds of materials commonly used. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Through this webinar attendees will gain insights into public art trends from the past decade and be able to compare their own public art collections data with national data points.
