About the Boston Art Commission
The Boston Art Commission, staffed by the Mayor’s Office of Arts and Culture, is an independent board composed of nine appointed art and design professionals that holds public meetings to review and vote on matters concerning the City’s art collection. The City’s curatorial vision is to commission and approve innovative and transformative artworks that engage communities, enrich and enliven the urban environment, are driven by an artistically strong vision, enhance the diversity of the existing collection, respond directly to a specific environment, and possess durability appropriate to the lifespan of the work. For more information, visit our public art website.
