The Public Art Grant Program provides funds to artists/artist teams, creatives, makers, performers, arts organizations, and other cultural drivers, to enhance and increase arts and culture and public art opportunities within the city of Green Bay. Funded by the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA), funds are dedicated to supporting presentations, performances, workshops, research, and/or the creation of artwork within the City of Green Bay. The program strives to encourage artistic engagement, spur economic vibrancy, and revitalize Green Bay through the arts.

Professional artists of all disciplines, arts organizations, and other cultural drivers are encouraged to apply.
