Public Art Discussion Series
LAST SESSION of 2012-2013: Building for the Outdoors
Materials, installation, maintenance, OH MY! Preparing your artwork for the outdoor elements is no easy task. Join fellow public artists and public art administrators for an evening of presentations that feature installation best practices and lessons learned. Come away with applicable tips for your next public art project! All levels of public art experience are welcome.
The following is the format of the event:
Part I: Material Choice & Conservation Reviews
Find out how to use a conservator to help you with material choices and communication with commissioning agents! Whether you are an emerging artist looking for general assistance describing materials and techniques for a proposal, or an established public artist looking to confirm or update recent advances in the technology of art materials, this presentation will give you the information you need through case studies, examples of actual materials, and written reviews. Presenter: Public Art Conservator for the Cambridge Arts Council, Rika Smith McNally.
Part II: Public Artist presentations on process & materials. How do you get it up, and make it stay up!
- By land: David Fichter, Joshua Winer and Yetti Frenkel's murals and mosaics; Gillian Christy's sculptures
