Do you want to connect with artists, designers and cultural leaders? Collaborate with us on an upcoming issue of FORWARD!
Through FORWARD, we highlight how artists are partnering with cities, institutions, and communities to courageously tackle the vital issues of our time. We invite policy makers, public health workers, urban planners, architects, artists, city managers, funders, and others to get in touch.
With the launch of FORWARD, we are closing our magazine Public Art Review after 31 wonderful years. Past issues are available to browse digitally for free on Forecast’s Issuu page.
While we hope you’ll join us and enjoy FORWARD, we invite you to continue to find inspiration from PAR on our site. Explore curated content covering topics ranging from Agriculture + Food to Workforce Development; you’ll find the full list on the Explore More section below. For further inspiration, browse select Projects We Love, and dive deep into the past two issues, 58 and 59. You can also flip through digitized PDFs of past issues of most of the print magazine on Forecast’s Issuu page; a preview of issue 59 is linked below.
