Default Florida Public Art Professionals Annual Conference in West Palm Beach, FL

Multi-disciplinary professionals involved in public art projects across the state of Florida will converge in Palm Beach County to share success stories and lessons learned from their experiences in integrating public art into public and private capital construction projects, urban planning initiatives and environmental restoration projects. Through facilitated discussions, virtual tours of statewide projects implemented over the past year and in-depth tours of local projects, conference attendees will be immersed in case studies that illustrate the diverse pieces of the “public art puzzle” including funding, politics and the public art process; from concept development through construction.
