Public Art

Six glowing red steel-frame sculptures in a field at night.

Nina Cooke John, Point of Action

As a non-collecting organization, we offer artists commissioning funds to make their work, which we then display for a limited time before returning it to the artists. This is in contrast to most institutions, who purchase works to display permanently.

The boundaries of our public art program are porous. Sometimes, we receive grants to fund individual public artworks. Other times, artists will propose outdoor installations for our exhibitions.
