As this challenging year comes to a close, Forecast is reflecting on our mission and the purpose of our work. Throughout 2020, we consistently innovated to continue doing what we do best — providing caring, experienced support to artists, institutions and communities who seek to bring hope, healing, joy and much more to public spaces across the country.

 We want to keep innovating to disrupt the status quo through equitable public art and creative community engagement, and need your help to make that happen. With your support we will:  
Launch our new Change Lab
Expand our pro bono consulting 
Reimagine Public Art in the U.S. At Forecast, we believe in a future where all people feel a sense of belonging, realize their potential and live healthy lives by embracing culture and creativity as drivers of equitable change. Perhaps you believe in that future too. If you do, please donate today.

Give today and join us in fostering a better and
more just world through arts in public life.

There is something beautiful and dangerous about a working foundry. It’s amazing that the technique of lost wax casting is still virtually unchanged for the last 7000 years. The startling thing is the timelessness of the art—the age-old technique of Lost Wax Casting.
