Public Art and You: A Mini-Symposium
Co-presented with the Winnipeg Arts Council
Free! All welcome! Lunch included!
Do you see calls for public art commissions and think, “that’s not for me”? Think again! In order for there to be great public art in our communities, it is essential that artists put themselves and their ideas forward. Public art can be a part of any artist’s practice. It is simply another venue, another canvas and another site we can use to articulate ourselves. Public art can take many forms: community-based interactive projects, sculptures, performance interventions… There is no reason you should not take up public space! Learn more about public art by attending this day-long public art how-to forum featuring experienced artists who have all recently completed projects through the Winnipeg Arts Council’s Public Art Program. And there’s a free pizza lunch!
This is also a golden opportunity to hear artists Germaine Koh (Vancouver), Sarah Crawley and Christine Fellows speak about their fascinating work.
