Public Arts Advisory Committee


The purpose of the Public Arts Advisory Committee (PAAC) is to integrate a wide range of public art into the community that reflects the diversity of the Village, various artistic disciplines and points of view, as well as to:

  • Promote vitality and economic development throughout the community
  • Develop a public collection of artwork which has strong aesthetic quality and a wide range of artistic styles and disciplines
  • Encourage collaboration among artists, architects, engineers and property owners for the public display of art so that buildings, store facades, parks and open spaces are in aesthetic harmony with public art
  • Provide opportunities for professional artists to sell or lease their art to the Village of Skokie
  • Disperse public art throughout the community within an initial focus in Downtown Skokie

The app also helps users discover public art around the community that might have otherwise gone unnoticed.
