Hi Sherri, et al.
In 2017 Americans for the Arts completed a survey of public art programs which asked that very question. The final report, which can be downloaded here, didn’t dive that deeply, however of the survey respondents 60% stated they were part of public agencies. Of that 60%, 99% responded to the question “If your public art program is administered under the umbrella of a public agency, please identify the agency/department in which it operates.” Of those,
37% listed their department/agency as “Arts / Cultural Affairs”
15% listed their department/agency as “Economic Development”
15% listed their department/agency as “Parks and Recreation”
7% listed their department/agency as “Planning and/or Community Development”
3% listed their department/agency as “Public art program is a STAND-ALONE public agency or department”
3% listed their department/agency as “Transportation/Public Works”
The remaining 20% listed “Other” as their department/agency. When asked to provide more details, the responses ranged from “Library and Arts” to “Mayor’s Office”, “Real Estate and Facilities Services”, “Community Services”, and “Marketing” to name a few.

Hello PAN Fellows,
Didn’t someone do a survey not too long ago that showed where – what departments – Public Art Program are housed?
Would love to get my hands on a copy of that.
