Art Prospect is an annual public art festival founded in 2012 by the nonprofit CEC ArtsLink. The festival alters the familiar urban landscape, filling streets, courtyards, parks, and other public spaces with works of contemporary art. To date, it has featured more than 250 artists from 20 different countries. The festival has taken place in the Central, Petrograd, Vyborg, and Admiralty neighborhoods of St. Petersburg. More than 20,000 visitors attended over the past 5 years. In 2017, the festival was hosted for the first time in Bishkek (Kyrgyzstan) and Baku (Azerbaijan).
Art Prospect's mission is to develop new forms of creative interaction, offering artists and local residents the opportunity to explore the urban environment and to determine and reimagine its aesthetic, historical, cultural, and social ingredients.
