Our Mission Statement: To support Public Art as a community investment and promoting art in public places, and to support public art activities that benefit the citizens of Duluth; to encourage partnerships that further the awareness of beauty in our community and to support our City's environment through public art.
Established in 1986, the Duluth Public Arts Commission (DPAC), an agency of the City of Duluth and managed by a citizens advisory group appointed by the Mayor of Duluth, has administered Duluth's unique city ordinance of One Percent for Art in Public Places. Approved by the Duluth City Council in 1986 as a city ordinance, one percent of all City of Duluth new construction costs will be designated for a public art feature to selected by a Duluth Public Arts Commission Selection Committee made up of citizens of Duluth, Arts Commission members, and the project design team, made up of architects and building developers.
