Strengthening Communities through Public Art
Through our community commissions, Groundswell is commissioned by community groups, non-profit organizations, and public agencies to develop unique partnerships rooted in our collaborative artmaking process. Each community partnership culminates in a public art project that reflects the group's mission and furthers its strategic objectives. Community commissions often take place at a partner organization's site.
If you are a representative of a community-based organization and are interested in commissioning Groundswell, please complete our community partner inquiry form.
