We believe that when people engage in the arts, communities grow and thrive. Artists are natural connectors and community builders who can help define the look and feel of cities and towns. Our job is to find ways to connect artists and communities. Contemporary public art and urban planning are increasingly working together to reach the mutual goal of improving communities. Barbara Goldstein & Associates help combine public art and urban planning strategies to reach the common goals of social change, environmental improvement, economic growth and vibrant communities. We listen and translate the goals of stakeholders and community members, into a workable plan. Major aspects included in a plan are:

Location consideration
• Community participation
• Definition of goals
• Funding
• Policies
• Staffing Needs
• Milestones
