Boston Art Commission

First created in 1890, the commission advocates for public art in Boston’s civic spaces.

We have information about publicly accessible art in Boston, the public art process, calls to artists, and more. You can also learn more about what we do at the Boston Art Commission.

Commission meetings during COVID-19

We will be holding our next meeting of the Boston Art Commission on Tuesday, July 14, at 4 p.m. View the agenda.

This meeting will be held virtually. You can participate by going to this Zoom link and using your computer's audio and microphone. If you are unable to connect to audio, or you do not have Internet, you can call into the meeting by dialing 301-715-8592 and entering Meeting I.D. 870 2681 8307 #.

Access to our meetings

The Mayor’s Office of Arts and Culture has received many questions from artists and arts and culture organizations regarding current schedules and timeframes in response to COVID-19. We are actively exploring new ways to move public art projects forward under the current circumstances. In accordance with Governor Baker’s March 12 Executive Order, which modified certain provisions of the Open Meeting Law, we will ensure that the public has access to any materials and that there is adequate, alternative access to the Commission’s deliberations. 

If you have questions about submitting public comments or attending Tuesday’s meeting, please send us an email at
