Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in State Arts Agency Public Art Programs: A Roundtable Report

Sep 30, 2021
  • Description

Public art or percent for art policies are present in more than half of states and jurisdictions, but little research has been conducted on the equity aspects of these state level programs. This roundtable report begins to address this need, offering an assessment of salient equity related challenges and solutions. Included are recommendations for diversifying artist rosters, making calls for entry more accessible and engaging communities in public art projects. The report was produced in collaboration with the Washington State Arts Commission along with the reports In Pursuit of Equity: Four Case Studies of State Arts Agencies and Deepening Relationships with Diverse Communities: State Arts Agency Strategies.
