The Art Production Fund (APF) is a non-profit organization under section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. tax code that presents public art around the world.[1] It was founded by Yvonne Force Villareal and Doreen Remen with a mission "dedicated to commissioning and producing ambitious public art projects, reaching new audiences and expanding awareness through contemporary art."[2][3] With the help of their director of operations, Casey Freemont,[4] APF works to help artists create large-scale, difficult-to-produce works. The corporation is devoted to contemporary art presentations, curatorial work and public education.


Founded in January 2000,[5] APF developed out of recognition that many ambitious art projects require innovative production strategies because they have few precedents and demand new approaches – they involve the collaboration of several disciplines, exceed the size or scale of traditional art installations, and engage the general public in a unique way.
