In October 2014, Bloomberg Philanthropies invited mayors to collaborate with artists and arts organizations to develop innovative projects that engage residents and attract visitors. More than 230 cities submitted proposals, affirming the many ways in which the arts can celebrate, address, and advance critical urban issues. In June 2015, the Public Art Challenge selected four cities to receive up to $1 million each over the next two years: Albany/Troy, NY; Gary, IN; Los Angeles, CA; and Spartanburg, SC.
