Friday, June 17
10:00 a.m. PT
Speaker: Gail Goldman, Public Art Activist and Consultant
Artists working in the public realm can accomplish far more than placing a beautiful artwork on a pedestal or in a plaza. Their work can transform space, heighten our awareness, stimulate human interaction, and help define community. Public art is a reflection of how we see the world—the artist’s response to our time and place combined with our own sense of who we are. This lecture will explore trends in public art over the years including architecturally integrated art, environmental art, digital new media, and interactive art, among others.
This lecture celebrates the legacy of Larry Baza, whose passion, commitment, and advocacy for the arts made San Diego a better place.
