"Public Art and the City" will bring together artists, curators, administrators, and other professionals for conversations about public art. Three panels address arts organizations and collaboratives; artist
perspectives and particular projects; and mapping, technology and archiving. Lunchtime breakout
sessions will engage key topics, such as preservation, civic space, neighborhood arts, and other foci.
A keynote address by Dr. Theresa Leininger-Miller, associate professor at the University of
Cincinnati, will consider Cincinnati's past and present as a case study of monuments, memorials,
government funding, and public art trends.
"Public Art and the City" aims to engage the theoretical, practical, and technological
frameworks of public art. A pre-symposium public art tour will take place in New Albany, IN.
The symposium will take place on Friday, April 22, 2011 from 9 am - 3:30 pm.
