GSA’s Art in Architecture | National Endowment for the Arts | Catch My Job


The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) and the US General Services Administration (GSA) are collaborating to raise awareness of GSA’s arts in architecture program and to promote federal art commission opportunities for artists who reflect the diversity of communities across the country. Both organizations share a commitment to increasing equitable opportunities for artists, making federal art commissions accessible to the public.

On October 12th at 1:00 pm ET, GSA Administrator Robin Carnahan and NEA Chair Maria Rosario Jackson participate in a video discussion about the 50-year history of the Art in Architecture program and the significant role of public art in our country. See below.


In September, the Arts Endowment hosted a series of four informational webinars about the Art in Architecture program and upcoming opportunities. Webinars included program history and goals; how one can be considered for upcoming project opportunities and join the National Artist Registry; And what to expect if selected for commission.

Each of the webinars focuses on a different area where the new commission will be.

New York and New England (12 projects)
Upper Midwest (3 projects)
Southwest (5 projects)
Pacific Northwest (5 projects)
