Americans for the Arts Public Art Network (PAN) is accepting submissions for the 2019 PAN Year in Review application. Public art projects that were completed and open to the public from January 1st to December 31st, 2018 are eligible for submission. The PAN Year in Review annually recognizes outstanding public art projects that represent the most compelling work for the year from across the country and beyond. Three public art professionals serve as jurors to review hundreds of project applications and select up to 50 projects to include. The PAN Year in Review is the only national program that specifically recognizes public art projects and is an excellent advocacy and educational tool for those who are impacting their community through public art.

Selected public art projects are publicly announced at the annual Public Art Preconference of Americans for the Arts’ Annual Convention in Minneapolis, Minnesota June 13-16, 2019. The jurors present their selections and provide insight into what topics and trends emerged from their review of the hundreds of applications. The selected projects are presented gallery-style throughout the Public Art Preconference and Annual Convention to over 1,000 attendees, are included in the PAN Year in Review Online Database along with previously recognized projects.

Past projects have ranged from temporary projects, site specific permanent pieces, artists in residencies, social practice work and more. To access past projects, visit the PAN Year in Review Online Database that holds the over 800 past projects that have been selected by previous jurors:

Applications will be accepted until Wednesday, February 27th. More information on the PAN Year in Review and the application can be found in the GUIDELINES LINK above.
