Last week at its annual conference, Americans for the Arts’ Public Art Network (PAN) announced its picks for the best public art projects in the country and Landmarks’ The Color Inside by James Turrell was among the chosen! Each year a jury of public art professionals culls through hundreds of projects and selects the most compelling works to include in the PAN Year in Review, the only national program that recognizes public art.
The PAN Year in Review was founded in 2000 to bring awareness and appreciation of public art to the communities that they serve. Works can include murals, sculpture, memorials, integrated architectural or landscape architectural work, community art, digital new media, and performance art.
The chosen works will be included in the PAN Year in Review Database later this summer. The searchable database offers a place to browse some of the best examples of public art in the country. See something familiar? Landmarks was recognized in 2013 for And That’s The Way It Is by Ben Rubin.
Thank you Americas for the Arts’ Public Art Network for this honor! If you haven’t seen it already, make a reservation to see The Color Inside and the stunning sunset light sequence. As weather patterns and light quality changes, so does the experience. Come early and often!
