6/10/14 – A Conversation About the Intersection of Art & Technology in Public Places

Tis program illuminates the ways in which technological innovations can — and should — not only enhance the art in question, but also provide the means by which the public and the place play a role in shaping that art. Diverse perspectives on how these interrelationships currently play out and what a vision for an even more robust future might look like were shared. As we begin to shape that vision, there is opportunity to identify best practices from other cities, both nationally and internationally.
