This is the arts blog for Fairfax County.
What role can public art play in the creation of meaningful public spaces? How might developers, architects, planners, public artists and community members work together? What impact do public art master plans have on development? Using the exhibition "Reston: The Art of Community" and Arlington County's public art program as a springboard, this roundtable discussion brings together public art administrators and curators.
This talk is part of Agency, Intervention and the Public Realm – a series of programs and exhibitions by UMD’s Kibel & Linear Galleries and School of Architecture, Planning & Preservation.
