Building a Public Art City

Public art has the capacity to change hearts and minds. It motivates you. It affirms you. It can challenge your biases and question the status quo. Ultimately, public art can elevate the economic and social health of our communities, and this is why we’re here. Now + There serves artists and the city by creating compelling public art projects that spark change.  

Find your way to current Now + There projects and see where we've been and where we're going on the map.

Curating, producing and supporting

We curate and support temporary and site-specific projects for, and with, the people of Boston. And along the way we hope to help advance new definitions of public art. We're glad you're here, and hope you'll join us! 


Developing a pipeline for more art

We recently launched the Now + There Public Art Accelerator to support artistic process and demystify public art. While our artists are scouting locations, we'd hear from you. Where would you like to see more temporary public art? Why do you say yes to more art?
