“Elayna was unanimously elected by the board of directors not only for her experience as a public art administrator, but also for how she champions best practices in the field. She will be a true asset to the organization,” said Melissa LeBaron Davies, FAPAP President and Project Coordinator for the City of Tampa Art Programs Division.




I’m honored to serve on FAPAP’s board,” said Singer, “and I look forward to advancing FAPAP’s work dedicated to development, advocacy and public education about the public art field in the state of Florida, in addition to promoting national best practices in public art.”


The Palm Beach County Art in Public Places program is managed by the Facilities Development & Operations Department. The program provides art that complements public buildings, parks and plazas; creates a sense of place; enhances community identity; improves the design quality of public infrastructure; and contributes to the missions of the county departments where projects are sited. Along with the countywide art installations, the program’s outreach and education benefit the entire community.
