The Evansville Public Art Commission was created in 2003 to enhance the cultural life in our community by generating interest in and support of public art. The Commission oversees the City's public art collection and advises the City on policies relating to the purchase, display and maintenance of the City's permanent art collection.
Before any piece of art is installed in a public place, it must be approved by the Evansville Public Art Commission. Click here to download Guidelines for Submission of Public Art Proposals.
What Is Public Art?
Public art is any art that is on public property. As nicely stated in the introduction to the Evansville Public Art guide, “From majestic war memorials to grand architectural embellishments, that which constitutes public art falls into a wide and wonderful category of objects that occupy a public space. Public art can be small or large, contemporary or classic, inspiring or provocative. It is not defined by a form but rather by a common characteristic – its unique accessibility to all members of the community.”
The Evansville Public Art Commission typically meets at 8:15 a.m. on the third Thursday of every other month.
