Americans for the Arts Conference

June 16, 2013

Interested in public art design and implementation? We recommend the American for the Arts Annual conference!

On June 13th and 14th, we gathered with artists, administrators, planners, and design professions for the Public Art pre-conference focused on national and international project completed in 2012. Fifty exemplary projects were highlighted, including an installation by Austinites Lucy Begg and Robert Gay from Thoughtbarn! Congrats!

The city tours were a highlight, including the new pedestrian bridge picture below. Shady Liberty was designed by a multi-disciplinary team, including artist Sheila Klein. We love everything about it, especially the handmade, glass reflectors which glimmer in the sunset!
