Lisa Tuttle leads this discussion of many innovative and successful ways photography can be used in public art projects - from inspiring examples to suggested approaches to your projects. Co-presented by Fulton County Public Art Program and the Foundation Center-Atlanta.
How can you as a photographer undertake a public art project? Join us for a presentation of local, national and international public art projects – both temporary and long-term – which incorporate lens-based art in innovative ways. The visual presentation will be followed by a panel discussion among photographers, artists who use photography, curators and administrators about public art practice and photography. Learn about some of the opportunities, resources, materials and vendors available to photographers in the public art field.
