Public art is critical for cities and can be a phenomenal experience for the artists who make them. However, many artists are unfamiliar with the process of applying for and successfully winning public art grants and bids. In this panel discussion with some highly-acclaimed public artists, learn about these unique opportunities from conception to execution.

Through her work as an artist, Barbara Grygutis creates public spaces that enhance the built environment, enable civic interaction, and reveal unspoken relationships between nature and humanity. She engages the public through her works of art by identifying themes meaningful to each specific site and community.

Grygutis has been commissioned to create over 75 large-scale works of public art throughout North America and is recognized internationally for her sculptural environments. Her completed projects include sculptural environments integrated into urban and natural landscapes, iconic freestanding works, sculpture gardens, public plazas, gateways and signature markers, memorials, monuments, and works of art designed to enhance pedestrian and urban mass transportation systems.
