Interested in public art? Come hear from field experts and peers, network with other artists, and participate in the discussion at the New England Foundation for the Arts. The first in their series will be a session featuring Lynn Basa, public artist, faculty member at the Art Institute of Chicago, and author of The Artists Guide to Public Art. This session is appropriate for artists with limited public art experience or those with experience who would like a refresher. Lynn will lead us through her “tricks of the trade” for finding, applying for, and winning public art commissions. Staff from NEFA, the Boston Art Commission, and the Cambridge Arts Council will also be available to share information about their public art programs.
Other topics in the works include temporary public art, transitioning from gallery work to the public realm, and public art in private development. For the subsequent session dates and times, visit www.nefa.org/calendar and check your email for future announcements from NEFA.
