A Design Philadelphia event.
Why does public art matter? How does it inspire wonder and create connections in public spaces? Join us to explore why public art matters to new urban parks. Guests Lucas Cowan, Public Art Curator for Boston’s Rose Kennedy Greenway; Miranda Kyle, Chief Curator of Art for the Atlanta BeltLine; and Melissa Kim, board member for Friends of the Rail Park, will hold a lively public discussion on how arts and culture programs are helping to bring these new parks to life and connect with the communities they serve.
Grab a beer at the front bar, and then join us in the back room for conversation and snacks. Afterward, head across the street to Aspect 281 for a special tour of the installation from artists Carolyn Healy & John JH Phillips.
