Demystifying Public Art Symposium at UMUC George’s County Department of Parks and Recreation/Arts and Cultural Heritage Division; Prince George’s Arts and Humanities Council; and University of Maryland University College Arts Program invite artists and other art professionals to a two-day symposium:

Demystifying Public Art

February 16–17, 2019

Public art—art outside traditional galleries or museums—is present everywhere, but many artists have limited knowledge of the various factors involved in participating in public art projects. The goal of this symposium is to demystify the process by bringing together people active in the public art field to address these factors.

The first day provides an introduction to public art through panel discussions geared to all levels of artistic experience. The second day offers a deeper dive into specific components of public art projects. Special closing events will take place on both days. This symposium will give attendees the opportunity to network and connect with presenters and each other.

Selected Panel Topics

  • Sponsors of Public Art
  • What Every Public Artist Needs to Know
  • Access and Entry Points: Testimonials of Various Artists
  • Public Art Resources
  • Public Art as the Art of Collaboration
  • Public Art Solicitation and Budget Documents
  • From Proposal to Fabrication: Making Public Art
  • Public Art and Community Engagement
