Artist Submissions

Public Art Fund does not accept unsolicited artist submissions, and we cannot return materials sent by mail.


Public Art Fund’s physical archives dated 1966-2009 are housed at Fales Library and Special Collections located within the New York University Archives at Bobst Library at 70 Washington Square S, New York City. You do not need to be affiliated with NYU to visit the library collection but you will need to set up an account here, and make an appointment to view the archives.

The finding aid for the Public Art Fund archives can be found here. When making an appointment with Fales, we suggest that the specific boxes or folders are requested using the information provided on this page. Additional questions or concerns about visitor access can be directed to [email protected].
