Joe’s Movement Emporium Hosts “Public Art Concepts: An Exhibit Of Proposals”
Opening: Friday September 27, 2013 at 7:00 pm. Closing November 22, 2013
Coordinated by Alonzo Davis | Curated by Nehemiah Dixon III
“Public Art Concepts” gives the public an opportunity to engage with the artist in a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to create artwork for a public space. Given the growing interest in and number of street murals and 3-D works along the arts district corridor “Public Art Concepts” paves the way for a focused dialogue about what it means to create an arts district and how this change begins with the artist. The exhibit features scale models and proposals for public art works by regional and national artists who have applied for grants and commissions, some of which were awarded and others not.
Opening night features a lively panel of participating artists and reps from funding agencies that have diverse experience in the public art arena.
