Research and Evaluation

Research & Evaluation

Assessments of each Public Art Challenge project were undertaken by local evaluators. A national evaluator looked across all five projects in the second round, and four projects in the first round.

These evaluations had several objectives. The local assessments aimed at capturing the specific dynamics of each project with attention and expertise devoted to the unique qualities of the art, the issue, the communities involved, and the city.

Each national evaluation assessed all projects, ensuring a degree of comparability among the local efforts in terms of approach, and identifying common themes and impacts across all projects.
