Public Art and the City Symposium 2013
Public Art and the City 2013: Art In/On the Landscape
The Symposium’s Keynote Presentation will be delivered by Mary Miss who has founded the City as Living Laboratory, which provides a framework for making issues of social and environmental sustainability tangible through collaboration and the arts. Trained as a sculptor, her work creates situations emphasizing a site’s history, its ecology, or aspects of the environment that have gone unnoticed.
Morning panelists will discuss recent public art projects in St. Louis, Nashville, and Long Beach, Calif. The featured artists have created or managed works in outdoor settings such as vacant city lots, flooded waterfronts and alongside urban waterways. Dan Jones, chairman and CEO of 21st Century Parks, will give the luncheon talk about the Parklands of Floyds Fork urban parks system project. The afternoon roundtable session about perspectives on public art will feature U of L professors discussing sacred sites in a global perspective, environmental history, urban planning and mapping as a tool to understand landscape.
All events will be held at the University Club, which offers free parking for attendees. Directions to the University Club.
