Public Art Incubator
Sculpting the Future
The Public Art Incubator (PAI) is a unique program within the University of Northern Iowa art department and serves as a conduit between communities and artists to create art for public spaces.
Public art is a rapidly growing field in the United States. Augmenting the quality of life for its citizens, the visual arts and other cultural resources are increasingly recognized as major components of economic development initiatives in communities nationally. The PAI provides technical resources that assists both emerging and professional artists in the development of public art projects.
Assisting artists at all stages of the process
The PAI facilitates the transformation of artists’ concepts into a high-quality permanent artwork destined for communities across Iowa and beyond. Participating artists work directly with faculty, technical staff and students to fabricate artwork utilizing our well-equipped facilities.
