Unique in form and content, CEC Artslink’s Art Prospect is the first large-scale festival of public art in St. Petersburg.

Bringing art out of galleries and onto the street, creating interactive projects, and changing the visual and architectural elements of their familiar surroundings, Art Prospect alters and challenges residents’ perceptions of the urban environment. The theme for 2012 was "Model" which involved master classes and public performances led by Ed Woodham of Art in Odd Places.

Art Prospect is produced with support from the US Embassy in Moscow, the Trust for Mutual Understanding, the St. Petersburg branch of the National Center for Contemporary Art, and “Anna Nova” Gallery in St. Petersburg.


In 2012, eighteen American and Russian artists and art collectives, who share a mutual commitment to bring art into unconventional venues and to broad audiences, created site-specific work in courtyards, shop windows and public parks along a bustling stretch of Liteiny Prospect in the city center. Co-curated by Ed Woodham of Art in Odd Places, the festival includes lectures and workshops by the participating artists, under the unifying theme of "Model".
