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 8: Temporary Programming, we will explore the following questions: Is it possible to achieve monumental projects within a short-term time frame? Is “now” the opportunity in a changing program? Are temporary public art projects the best solution in a constantly changing world?

Rina Greer, public art consultant
Jayne Wilkinson, Editor-in-Chief, Canadian Art, with Yan Wu, Markham Public Art
Ilana Altman, Co-Executive Director, The Bentway
