See the web site – OPB’s Everybody’s Art

More than 30 years ago Oregon was one of the first states to commit consistent funding to public art. Thanks to our Percent for Art program Oregon is home to a collection of more than 2,500 pieces of art funded by us, the public. Add to that the thousands of works that have been privately funded and it’s hard to go through a day without passing a fountain, mural, sculpture or some other piece of public art. But who’s creating public art and caring for it once it’s been installed? What impact does public art have on communities, on you? Start to answer these questions for yourself by watching Everybody’s Art, join the conversation about public art with Think Out Loud on OPB Radio. Then get out and explore public art in your neighborhood and around the state using our public art map
