Applications must be submitted three weeks before a Boston Art Commission meeting and six weeks before the proposed installation start date. The BAC meets on the second Tuesday of every month. 


The Boston Art Commission, housed within the Mayor's Office of Arts and Culture, advocates for the creation of innovative and transformative art and promotes its accessibility to enrich the lives of Boston’s diverse citizens and visitors. The Art Commission advises, supports, and consults with artists and communities, City departments, and others. It commissions, approves, and conserves the City of Boston’s collection of art and historical artifacts. 

This form is for BAC review on whether to allow artwork to be sited on City property; this is not an application for funding. 

Please fill out the following form to propose both short and long-term public art and design interventions and installations on City of Boston property.

All applications may be reviewed by the Boston Art Commission at our monthly meeting, generally scheduled for the second Tuesday of the month. Applications must be submitted three weeks before a BAC meeting and six weeks before the proposed installation start date.

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
