The power of art in contemporary times has evolved from that of previous generations. Art not only contributes to our entertainment but also impacts our mental health and drives the economy. In 2019, the arts and cultural sector contributed $919.7 billion, accounting for 4.3% of the US GDP, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis.
Public art plays a crucial role in generating economic benefits and raising awareness of contemporary issues in communities. It can attract visitors, increase property values, and create a sense of place and identity. Global Public specializes in placing art in the public purview and developing its communicative properties into coherent expressions that are not abstract but rather literal. 
Robert Young maintains that although art is often subjective in nature when it aims to convey clear and tangible communication, its impact can be immediate and long-lasting. This is why our medium of choice for our large-scale activations is fine art and portrait photography.
