ABOUT THE JPAC

The Jeffersonville Public Art Commission, established in 2012, exercises legal authority to approve and site new public art on property owned by the City of Jeffersonville. Site-specific artworks identify Jeffersonville as a place with ingenuity and a great capacity for innovation. These artworks, both permanent and temporary, range from traditional to new media. It is the conviction of the Jeffersonville Art Commission that, in order to support a thriving artistic culture within the city, community involvement shall extend beyond everyday appreciation to meaningful engagement in the creation, evolving interpretation and ongoing care of artworks throughout Jeffersonville.
