Placed in the public realm, public art is free and accessible to all people to experience on their own terms. Public art can be temporary or permanent, large-scale or small, abstract or realistic. It can stand alone or be a well-integrated and functional element of a building or plaza. Public artists have the unique opportunity to express current issues, create an identity for your community, recognize a moment in history, and inspire actions in the future. Public art has the potential to visually connect civic spaces, inspire walkable communities and to imbue the manmade environment with community character.
