Art in Public Places

Art in Public Places has been commissioning artworks for installation in public venues within the city of Bend since the late 1970s and is a non-profit organization located in Bend, Oregon set out to provide art to various locations throughout the city. 

It's their goal to bring a wide range of artistic styles and ideas to our community and place them throughout town to raise awareness for the arts while also adding to the beautiful natural landscape of our homes in Central Oregon.  Art in Public Places is funded primarily by the philanthropic arm of Brooks Resources and the Bend Foundation.

From 2001 to 2011, Arts Central served on the board of the long established and respected Art in Public Places.
