Community Engaged Commissions

Community-Engaged projects foster meaningful interactions between artists and the communities they create artworks for. The interactions the artist builds shape their process in the design of a permanent artwork.

In the selection of artworks below, artists have held workshops, incorporated student drawings and designs, collected objects from the community to use as materials in the artwork, or spent time photographing and documenting daily life where the artwork will live. Their works weave together meaningful narratives and perspectives, celebrating community identity and spirit.
