We are pleased to announce the current session line-up for our Public Art 101 Professional Development Series geared towards artists and community members. Topics are chosen based on the needs and interests expressed by artists. All of the sessions are free but registration is limited.
Public Art 101 sessions allow us to provide ongoing support and professional development opportunities to artists who are transitioning their practice from studio work to the realm of public art.
