Making Temporary Public Art & Performance: What Artists Need to Know
Led by Erin Donnelly, Special Projects Consultant, LMCC and Independent Curator
As luxury towers rise, storefronts vacate, and new public spaces are designed, community and street life have become more important than ever. Artists have the opportunity to connect with civic life through the creation of temporary public art. What kinds of resources are available to guide you in making temporary public art in New York City? What essentials must you plan for in order to realize your project? This talk will introduce such resources as well as address such logistical and legal matters as securing locations, obtaining permits, and insurance.
This workshop is free and nearly at capacity. Registrants will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis and will receive confirmation by email.
