Stories about public art projects shared at the Americans for the Arts’ Public Art Network Preconference in June inspired this hour-long DIY mini-film fest for Public Art Review.

Many of the projects listed below were selected for the Public Art Year in Review, an annual event recognizing the best in public art; others are from various sessions including the late night traditional Five in Five Presentations. These represent a fraction of the hundred-plus projects discussed at the Preconference.

Enjoy the videos—and the art.
