Art In Place was a non-profit organization that commissioned sculptures and other art installations throughout the City of Charlottesville. [1] The administrator of the program was Elizabeth Breeden.

In 2015, the Piedmont Council for the Arts took over administration of the program. [2] They went defunct within a couple of years, leading to the functional end of the Art In Place program.


For many years, Charlottesville contributed a donation to the program each year, at one point through something called the Percent for Art fund. In exchange, the City gets to appoint one person to the Art In Place Foundation's Board of Directors.
