Leah Triplett Harrington, editor of Big Red & Shiny, explores how art and time-based work can be recorded or documented in this final essay in our four-part collaboration with Big, Red & Shiny and Alter Projects.
One of our core values at Now and There is to put artists' visions first. So for Boston's ArtWeek we wanted to host a conversation with artist to talk about the definitions of public art and what we can do to support more of it in our communities.
To explore a wide spectrum of social art practices we pulled together artists Cedric Douglas,Megan McMillan, Liz Nofziger and architect Rob Trumbour of Artforming. The event was held at the Boston Center for the Arts on Wednesday, May 6, 2015 from 5:30–7pm and was co-sponsored by NEFA's Fund For the Arts and the Boston Center for the Arts.
In the discussion of place-making and art-in-the-public-realm it often seems like the philosophies and interests of artists are left in the shadows. We think a lot about this at Now and There and wonder: where's the art? and where are artists when public art is planned?
We're pulling together artists Cedric Douglas, Megan McMillan, Liz Nofziger and architect Rob Trumbour ofArtforming to talk about the definitions of public art and what we can do to support more of it in our communities.
We hope you'll join us May 6, 5:30–7pm for Where's the Art? exploring the spectrum of social art practices.
