Welcome

The Institute for Public Art (IPA) focuses on public art as a place-maker and generator of social capital, world-wide. It does this through: researching case studies; sharing information; promoting great examples.

With thanks to our partner Universities and magazines Public Art (Shanghai) and Public Art Review (Minneapolis). This website’s material comes from our research network - thanks! - and is continuously under review. Please enjoy it, and send us your comments, amendments and suggestions.

The seven case studies on this page are the 2021 International Award for Public Art (IAPA) commended projects.

Institute for Public Art is registered as Network for Public Art Ltd at 104-108 Oxford Street, London, W1D 1LP, United Kingdom, Company Number 11951072
