Becoming Public Art: Art and Urban Planning
Becoming Public Art: Working Models & Case Studies for Art in Public is a nine-week virtual summit presented by the City of Markham, in partnership with ART+PUBLIC UnLtd. In a series of virtual sessions open to the public, professionals in the field will present the broad range of perspectives that shape public art making today.
In Session 4: Art and Urban Planning, we will explore the following questions: What is the role of culture and art in the development of future cities? What can and should it be? How to embed public art within the process of urban planning? Can it become an integral part of the process?
