Public Art in the Digital Era: Public Art Panel
June 25, 2009 @ 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
In the past few decades there has been increased intersection between public art and digital technology.The Art Center’s own digital catwalk facade acts as both public art display and an interactive use of digital technology. But where is this all headed? Where did it begin? Join us as our panel discusses the growing relationship between technology and public art. Our panel consisting of artists and arts administrators will talk about the ways in which technology has changed public art, has it become a burden or a blessing, and where will the public art go next?
