How You Can Support Our Public Art Work in Philadelphia

As 2021 comes to a close and we gear up for a big year ahead, the Association for Public Art (aPA) remains committed to offering meaningful opportunities for outdoor enjoyment and exploration through our public art partnerships, programs, and commissions. We have some exciting projects in the works for our 150th anniversary celebration in 2022 and look forward to sharing those details with you in the coming months!

Your continued interest in our organization and public art plays a vital role in making our work possible. Your support helps us commission and preserve significant works of outdoor sculpture in Philadelphia, as we promote the important role for art and artists in the creation and enhancement of our public spaces.


Members and donations of $35 or more receive a pack of postcards as a small public art inspired token of our appreciation! This year’s selection (pictured): Maja, Atmosphere and Environment XII, AMOR, and Social Consciousness.
