APF, founded by Curators Yvonne Force Villareal and Doreen Remen in 2000, is a non-profit arts organization dedicated to providing artists with necessary production assistance for complex, difficult-to-realize projects, often of a multidisciplinary nature. As a leading producer and presenter of bold new commissions and ambitious site-specific projects around the country, APF offers artists financial, technical and logistical support from the early planning stages until project completion. The organization operates on a modest scale, enabling it to respond to opportunities in a timely manner and to commission risk-taking projects, which require production support and expertise in the field of public art. By partnering strategically with other institutions, APF is able to expand its capacity in order to meet the requirements which complex projects demand. These public art commissions challenge artists to work outside the confines of their normal practice, subsequently propelling their careers to the next level. APF projects are presented in highly visible, unexpected venues across the country reaching passersby and art audiences alike.


APF primarily acts as a producer, offering guidance to the artist and bringing together the individuals, institutions, and resources needed to realize and promote projects. It also works to educate the public about contemporary art and share its expertise with individual artists and other emerging art producing organization.

Collaborating Organization

Collaboration is a core element in APF’s programming model; its partnerships with private and non-profit institutions contribute to the successful realization of elaborate and complex public art projects, which enable participating artists to make connections outside their traditional networks. APF works with each partner to maximize and leverage their own unique assets and special expertise to achieve enhanced economies of scale which otherwise would not be possible to achieve. Most importantly, APF’s contemporary art interventions in public sites have helped to promote greater arts and social awareness.
