GBPAC focuses on the creation and preservation of public art within Green Bay, and ensuring equal access for all to enjoy and engage with public art. The GBPAC exists to fund artistic activities and support cultural programs that integrate and advance arts and culture as an essential part of life in Green Bay.

Public art is any art form that is readily available for the public and is unimpeded by barrier or entry.  Public art includes work on both public or private property and can be permanent or temporary.

The GBPAC promotes the arts, culture, and creative identity of Green Bay through three main ventures; the Rotating Art Program, the Annual Grant Program, and Letters of Support. Focus is also placed on creating new public art programs, projects and art opportunities. Please see our left-hand navigation for more on these programs and how to apply for them.
