Major Responsibilities
Established in 2018, the Madison Public Arts Commission (PAC) reflects the community’s recognition of the need for a comprehensive public art policy that improves and enhances the cultural assets and public spaces within the City of Madison.

This civic board works cooperatively with other boards including the Cemetery Stewardship Commission, the Corridor Design Commission, Downtown Development Authority, the Greenspace Design Commission, and the Historic Preservation Commission to introduce public art into a diversity of public spaces throughout the community. The PAC also works with private property owners and developers to ensure that public art is a priority throughout Madison.
