This is a free online database that provides comprehensive information on public art in North America. As of 2014 it includes the following broad categories of work:1. Public artworks commissioned through an official public art commissioning process, or acquired through a standard acquisition process (especially works that are maintained through Public Art funds). 2. Works of art that are commissioned, gifted, or granted by corporations, museums, educational institutions, private parties, and other entities for the purpose of being presented in public spaces for the benefit of the public.
