Valuing the Artist's Vision First

How will artists be part of placemaking and public art in Boston? On May 6, 2015 we hosted the"Where's the Art?" panel at the Boston Center of the Arts to discuss just that. Moderated by our director Kate Gilbert, artists Cedric DouglasMegan McMillanLiz Nofziger, and Rob Trumbour spoke about the definitions of public art and what we can do to support more of it in our communities.

Where's the Art?

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 DouglasMegan McMillanLiz 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.
