Creating and Managing Public Art

Public art—art intended for the public domain, accessible to all—involves responding to specific sites, administering artist selection processes, advocating for artists, fostering community engagement, collaborating with architects, and working with fabricators. Explore the range of public art being produced, and learn about current trends and best practices in creating and managing public art. Consider different funding and curatorial models—public/private, temporary/permanent, total integration, or plop art. Follow a project from start to finish in this course, designed for practicing and aspiring artists, architects, arts administrators, and real estate developers. Also, get the opportunity to create your own public art initiative.
