Public Art in the Parkade

PAP is a rotating art exhibit that was created last year by the Fairfax Parks & Recreation Commission (PARC).  Originally brought to the Park & Rec by “Peaceman”, a local artist who had the idea of showing public art in the downtown venue, the exhibit has evolved into showcasing a different artist every three months.  Each applicant comes before the Parks & Recreation Commission with photos of their artwork, which PARC considers for approval and then schedules for display downtown.

For further information on how to apply to show your art in this space, please contact:
