Local artist Conor Mullen and his artwork Salamander Stink and the Haunted Handshake located at the LaBonte Park Skate Park included in the 2022 Public Art Archive's "Have You Seen My Public Art?" Map.
 The Public Art Archive™ (PAA) is thrilled to unveil the second edition of its celebratory Have You Seen My Public Art? Map. Ten years have passed since PAA commissioned the first edition, which brought visibility to the program when it originally launched. Since that time, the PAA team has continued its mission to make public art more public by archiving almost 20,000 public artworks around the U.S. (with a growing number of international works) at no cSSHH.2022ost to both artists who create the artwork and organizations that commission or own the works. PAA continues to be an entirely free resource for documenting public art and discovering art in every community through its digital platforms. Thanks to the amazing work of Boulder-based artist Kara Fellows, who was commissioned to illustrate the selected artworks and design the map. We are extraordinarily proud to share the second edition of Have You Seen My Public Art? as a way to show our gratitude and appreciation for all those collaborators who have contributed to PAA over the years.The second edition of the map includes 144 artworks across all 50 states created by over 176 unique artists and studios, mostly within the last 10 years. Projects vary in type (outdoor sculpture, mural paintings, wall pieces, etc.), placement (universities, parks, municipal buildings, transportation spaces, etc.), media (steel, paint, wood, etc.), theme, and budget and demonstrate a mixture of both permanently-sited and temporarily installed works. Breakdowns and analyses of the artworks chosen for this project, providing a snapshot of trends and patterns in the field over the past decade, can be explored below.
The project received over 500 submissions, and while all of the projects are not included on the map, they have all been cataloged in the PAA database and are available for public exploration and discovery through our desktop site and Locate app. Thank you to all contributors to this project. It is our hope that it will reinvigorate the desire and need for a central repository of public art data so that all members of the public can engage with public art across every community.
