Cities across America are recognizing the power of public art to break down cultural barriers and advance their missions in housing, workforce, transportation, health, and the environment. The Community Foundation for Northern Virginia will explore the impact of public art and community building when it presents “Public Art and Placemaking” in its next Innovation Breakfast Series event.
“Art has this amazing capacity to help people re-imagine the place they live,” says Eileen Ellsworth, President and CEO at Community Foundation for Northern Virginia.
Event speakers include Katarzyna Balug, Co-founder, Department of Play, Deirdre Ehlen MacWilliams, Public Art Project Manager, Arlington Arts, Holly Koons, Executive Director, Arlington Arts Center, Lisa Mariam, Director of Grants and Services ARTSFairfax, and Public Artist Marly McFly.
The community is welcome to attend for a fun, engaging, interactive discussion of how we can co-create more vibrant public spaces that engage, interact, and transform the region.
The event will be held from 8:00 to 10:30 a.m. on Friday, Sept 13, 2019 at Booz Allen Hamilton, 8283 Greensboro Drive, McLean.
Registration is $40 and includes a continental breakfast and presentations.
