We’re counting on you!

Join us in fostering a better and more just world through arts in public life.

As our country struggles to deal with the devastating impact of the pandemic on our health and economy we are also facing the crisis of systemic racism. While some communities continue to thrive, many Black, Brown and Indigenous communities are falling further behind. The long-standing deep structural inequities in this country have been laid bare and can no longer be ignored.

Although the arts and cultural infrastructure in the U.S. has been shuttered and economically devastated, public art is proving more essential than at any other time in our history. Public art is providing opportunities for social connection in public spaces and giving artists creative ways to get back to work and contribute to problem-solving.

Streets are now our galleries, parks are our theaters, sidewalks are our music venues, and protests are our poetry readings.
