PAT Commissions

As part of PAT's role to proactively develop new public art, the PAT may commission Singapore and/or International artists to create unique public artwork for selected spaces/sites, which have been shortlisted from a repository of public spaces made available for use.

Artists can be commissioned either through:

  • An Open Call;
  • A Closed Call (nomination process);
  • A Direct Commission (existing proposals from database); or
  • A Direct Purchase.
