IXIA take over Public Art Online

IXIA the public art thinktank has taken over ownership and management of the Public Art Online website, which is a relief as the website had not been updated since the end of March 2010 when Public Art South West ceased trading. 

IXIA's Chief Executive Jonathan Banks said: “The website is a critical resource and ixia’s aim is to widen understanding about the value, role and commissioning of public art projects through Public Art Online. Over the coming months the website will be developed to ensure it is accessible to arts and non-arts policy makers and delivery organisations within the public and private sectors, curators, artists and the public.”

Initially, ixia will focus on ensuring Public Art Online is kept up-to-date, and any information about research, events or projects should be sent to info@ixia-info.com

In order to continue to receive updates, anyone who is subscribed to the existing Public Art Online emailing list will need to re-subscribe to ixia’s Public Art Online version due to the change of ownership. Current subscribers to Public Art Online will receive an e-newsletter informing them of the change of ownership and can be re-subscribed within a couple of clicks of a mouse button.

For those interested in becoming subscribers to Public Art Online, this can be done can by visiting http://www.publicartonline.org.uk/ and entering their details into the 'join our elist' section on the home page.
