Celebrating 40 Years

Forecast is celebrating 40 years of impacting communities through public art and placemaking

What an incredible 40 years it has been! Since 1978, Forecast has grown to be respected international leader, published 57 issues of our award-winning magazine Public Art Review, provided grant funding to more than 300 artists, supported hundreds more artists and professionals with training and professional development, and helped countless communities across the country and around the globe create transformative, accessible art in public space.

As we reflect back on the remarkable legacy of Forecast, we are filled with inspiration and motivation for the years to come. During this auspicious year, Forecast will unveil a refreshed look with updated branding and a new website, launch new learning tools and trainings to make our trusted knowledge even more accessible and far reaching, and continue efforts toward our new people-oriented mission and vision.
