Public Art Fund

Society and lifestyle

Public Art Fund is an independent, non-profit arts organization founded in 1977 by Doris C. Freedman. The organization presents contemporary art in New York City's public spaces through a series of highly visible artists' projects, new commissions, installations, and exhibitions that are emblematic of the organization's mission and innovative history. Nicholas Baume joined PAF as Director & Chief Curator in 2009, and Susan K. Freedman has served as the President since 1986.
