About the Art in Public Places Collection

The Art in Public Places Collection (APP Collection) consists of Relocatable Works of Art (purchases and gifts) and Commissioned Works of Art (permanent and relocatable). Inventory numbers are assigned according to type of artwork. Relocatable Works of Art are solely numerical or begin with the letter “A”. Gifts of Artwork begin with the letter “G”. Commissioned Works of Art begin with the letter “C”. Relocatable Commissions begin with the letter “R”. The images have been watermarked to prevent or deter unauthorized copying of digital media.
