In the City of Pittsburgh and in neighborhoods and communities throughout the region, residents and activists in community organizations are increasingly expressing a desire for more public art because it enhances a sense of place and identity.
Join us for a workshop and presentation in partnership with the Office of Public Art to discuss and learn how individuals and community groups can get started in considering public art project types and the best practices of how to select artists, negotiate contracts, and budgeting for a project, among other topics.
Jeremy Waldrup, CEO of the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership, will discuss how his organization uses varied art and placemaking strategies to make Downtown Pittsburgh vibrant and welcoming for residents and visitors. The goal of this discussion and presentation is to have participants be able to develop a public art strategy for a site in their community.
This workshop is FREE to the public. Space is limited to 30 attendees. RSVPs are appreciated by Thursday, June 23: email@example.com or 412-471-5808 ext. 527
