awards for arts achievement
Public Art Network Award
The Public Art Network (PAN) Award is given annually in recognition and honor of innovative and creative contributions and/or exemplary commitment and leadership in the field of public art. It can be given to either an individual, including an artist, administrator, volunteer, designer, or government official, or an organization, including an arts council, public arts program, or private or public entity.
The awardee is selected by the PAN Council and the award is presented at the annual Public Art Network Preconference. PAN is designed to provide services to the diverse field of public art and to develop strategies and tools to improve communities through public art. Its key constituents are public art professionals, visual artists, design professionals, and communities and organizations planning public art projects and programs. The PAN Council is a group of elected leaders who provide guidance and advice to Americans for the Arts on public art programs and services.
Note: The PAN Award is not a project award. Please refer to the PAN Year in Review for project recognitions.
