Thank you for making 2013 a fantastic year for public art in Champaign-Urbana. We are looking forward to another great year in 2014! (More news...)
The Public Art League (PAL) is an Illinois not-for-profit organization whose focus is the installation, maintenance and promotion of public artworks in Champaign-Urbana. We identify potential works by conducting an annual, open call to artists who are willing to lease their works for a period of time for a contracted sum. Once finalists have been selected, PAL raises funds to bring the pieces to the community for installation. While on exhibit, artists have the opportunity to sell their work with the assistance of PAL.
Public Art League's mission is to promote creativity and improve the community's aesthetic by cultivating awareness and appreciation of public art. Since forming in 2010, 31 sculptures have been installed in Champaign-Urbana through the rotating sculpture program.
