Published by Forecast Public Art since 1989, Public Art Review is the world’s leading public art magazine. This international magazine offers an inspiring collection of articles, insights, ideas and commentary about art in public spaces.

With the launch of FORWARD, we closed Public Art Review (PAR) after 31 fantastic years. With the retirement of the print publication we are now closing back issue sales.

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 of our Publishing page. Browse select Projects We Love, and peruse online posts of each article from issues 58 and 59. You can also flip through digitized PDFs of the print magazines on Forecast’s Issuu page.

Redesigning How We Live Together

The 59th issue of Public Art Review is filled with articles about how artists and design practitioners are inviting us all—in this time of division—to focus on justice, inclusion, and human dignity. It includes feature articles about the new professionals working at the intersection of art, design, and equity; the winner and commended projects of the 2019 International Award for Public Art; an on-the-ground story about arts and culture in an economically and environmentally devastated Puerto Rico; and the work of artist-activists in Minnesota addressing water justice issues. The issue also includes articles about two communities using theater in different ways to envision their futures; environmental artist Mary Miss and social ecologist Adrian Cerezo discussing their collaboration and infusing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals into public art; an interview with Victoria Jones of The CLTV and The CMPLX in Memphis; and the work of other visionary artists and communities.
