Forecast Public Art
Forecast Public Art seeks to strengthen and advance the field of public art locally, nationally, and internationally by expanding participation, supporting artists, informing audiences, and assisting communities. The organization accomplishes this mission through three key programs: Forecast Public Art's grant program awards 8-10 competitive grants each year to emerging Minnesota artists. Grants range in size from $1,000 (for research and development) to $9,000 (for public projects). Public Art Review is the world’s leading journal that critically explores contemporary public art. Created in 1989, the Review has grown from a black and white newspaper format with a few hundred readers to a glossy 100-page magazine with approximately 10,000 readers in all fifty states and twenty foreign countries. Forecast Public Art's consulting practice helps create public art by providing project management for community groups, organizations, government agencies, and individual artists seeking to enhance public space.
