Public Art Network Listserv

The Public Art Network listserv encourages dialogue and discussion of critical public art issues, and is home of the PAN newsletter. It also acts as a networking tool and research engine for the field. Recent issues that have appeared on the listserv have included discussions on copyright, best practices in artist selection, insurance for temporary projects, contract information, deaccessioning policies, and examples of public art in public transportation. In addition to postings by members, the listserv features project and job opportunity listings. To submit information on your public art project or organization, send an e-mail

The listserv is available exclusively to Americans for the Arts members. If you are not a member, and would like more information, please visit the Become a Member page to learn how to join.
