The Art in Public Places (AIPP) program announces upcoming public art projects based on an annual number of the City’s eligible Capital Improvement Projects (CIP). The AIPP program receives 2% of the funding from those eligible CIP projects to use for obtaining unique artwork. AIPP averages 8 to 10 new projects every year - in parks, public buildings, walkways, and more!

Current Calls for Art in Public Places Projects
In the realm of public art, artists must work closely with design professionals, contractors, city officials, and community members. Creating project budgets, complying with contractual requirements, and meeting deadlines are necessary to the process. Below are some resources to help you in your process.
