CEC Artslink presents Publicly Creative: A Public Art Workshop. Public art is a fast-growing discipline with many unexplored opportunities for artists and communities. This workshop is a hands-on intensive introduction to the field, outlining resources, logistics, opportunities, and examples of successful collaborations. Recognizing artistic initiative as a valuable asset and a catalyst for a dialogue and transformation, we will explore how site-specific collaborations in varied cultural, geographic and political areas can influence business, social awareness and economic development. Encouraging close inspection of the particular issues faced by a specific New York community chosen by the participants, the workshop and the resulting public art work(s) will provide a unique platform for the participants and the public to explore and appropriate the city’s landscapes.

Random Acts of Public Art
I really enjoyed this afternoon's session of exploring ideas for public sculpture. I think it could have gone on for alot longer. I especially appreciated the group's interaction with each other's ideas. Very supportive and expansive.
The attention to street art is refreshing as a way to get started interacting with public space and the public. Faster, easier and less costly than installing steel sculptures.
Thanks to everyone!
