Accessing Public Art

June 2 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

| Free

Artists push their material, process, and practice in the name of public art. But there are pressing matters—including intention, interpretation, siting, and collaboration—facing artists, institutions, and viewers when considering art in the public realm. Does access to this work align with its significance?
