The Orange County Arts Council will present a panel of artists for a virtual meeting with the public to discuss the future of public art on Friday, Aug. 7, from 4 to 5:30 p.m.

The artists include the renown muralist Cekis; Patricia Walsh, public art and civic design senior program manager for Americans for the Arts; Aliza Schiff of VIA Partnership; and Jamie Perrow, co-founder of Urban Art Projects.

The panel discussion will be facilitated by Martin Dominguez Ball and will explore such topics as how the role of public art has shifted, what might the future hold for public art, how the industry has adapted to current times, and advice from the panelists for artists to pursue public art and how the community can support it.

With so much uncertainty in the arts world today, this timely conversation will touch on many significant topics surrounding public art including how public art has been affected through the current economic, cultural and social climate as well as how the industry is finding solutions through the challenges of Covid19. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions through the group chat box available on Zoom.

The program is presented in partnership with Grit Works of Newburgh. Registration is required and is free for Arts Council members and $10 for non-members. An email with login instructions will be sent upon registration.
