cultureNOW: Public Art as Placemaking

Across the nation, public art has become an essential intervention to help invigorate city spaces. But how can we make the most of this approach?

Join cultureNOW on February 11 for an evening of thought-provoking discussion about the role of art in placemaking in Boston, and learn more about how the city’s creative vision has been an important part of the planning process.

Building on last summer’s panel discussion focusing on public art on Boston’s waterfront, cultureNOW returns to BSA Space and invites artists, architects, planners, and civic visionaries to share their perspectives on the city’s vibrant culture and ask them to reflect on how it can help shape the city’s future.

Moderator
Mark Favermann, Favermann Design

Panel
Julie Burros, City of Boston, Chief of Arts and Culture
George Fifield, Boston Cyberarts Inc, Director
Sarah Hutt, Fund for the Arts
Ross Miller, Artist
Kawandeep Virdee, Artist
