Who we are
The Percent for Art Artist Directory is a product of the New York City Department of Cultural (DCLA) Affairs Percent for Art Program. Since 1982, the Percent for Art Program has been commissioning permanent public artworks on City property as mandated by the Percent for Art Law.
What we do
The Percent for Art Artist Directory is a portal that connects established and emerging, local and international artists to audiences who wish to connect with artists.
How is the Directory used?
The Directory is used by anyone who is interested in working with artists on commissions, exhibitions, collaborations or collections. The NYC Department of Cultural Affairs (DCLA) Percent for Art Program, the School Construction Authority (SCA) Public Art for Public Schools (PAPS) Program and the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) Art & Design Program uses the Directory on a regular basis to research artists during the commissioning process. Keeping your profile up to date ensures that you will be considered for upcoming public art opportunities.
