Municipal—Artist Partnerships is a forthcoming website made with A Blade of Grass. It is a toolkit and guide for both municipalities and artists, to help them successfully collaborate. It synthesizes best practices, features the voices of partners, and offers case studies, tools, and resources from a number of remarkable partnerships across the US. These partnerships are happening across the United States, and are becoming an important way for both local governments and artists to think outside the box and have a direct impact on communities.
