Public Art with Cathie Behrend

Behind the Percent for Art Projects 2007-2017

with Kendal Henry

Since 1982, New York City's Percent for Art law has required that one percent of the budget for eligible city-funded construction projects be spent on public artwork.

Managed by the city’s Department of Cultural Affairs, the Percent for Art program has commissioned hundreds of site-specific projects in variety of media — painting, new technologies, lighting, mosaic, glass, textiles, sculpture and works that are integrated into infrastructure and architecture — by a diverse group of artists. Join director Kendal Henry in conversation with Cathie Behrend, the former deputy director of the Percent for Art program, to learn more about the decisions and design process of some of the program’s projects from the last 10 years and how our city’s civic and community buildings are enriched through art.
