Public Art 101: Commissioning Works of Art for Community Settings

March 7, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Are you an artist, an art connoisseur, a neighborhood and community activist, or just an individual that is interested in the addition of public art in your area?
If so, join us at Public Art 101: Commissioning Works of Art for Community Settings, a symposium partnership of the Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation and the Pittsburgh Office of Public Art.

This session will provide a discussion platform looking at the basic framework of how neighborhood groups, organizations, or even entrepreneurial individuals, think about and approach commissioning and completing public art projects.

The session will feature presentations by the staff of the Office of Public Art, along with artists and organizations that commissioned and completed art projects in public places.

Attendees and participants will learn how to structure a public art project, work with an artist, and develop a public art plan.

This event is free and open to the public.

RSVPs are appreciated. Click here to register.
