Public Art - What's it about really?

Wednesday, November 3, 2021

The City of Lewes Public Art committee will be hosting a community talk and information sharing program on November 3, 2021, from 7-8:30 PM at the Virden Center. As part of its continuing educational mission, the program will have speakers will explore Public Art as a process, a resource, a place maker, and a community builder. The speakers will be a lifelong public artist, Kate Dodd and Lewes's own Rodney Robinson, utilizing his expertise as a landscape architect in open space use and design.


This will be a wrap up session for Kate as she deinstalls “Efflorescence” currently on display in George H P Smith Park.  You have just a few weeks left to catch it.


While we will speak about the whys and wherefores of public art, we will also be requesting feedback and comments from the audience about their encounters with this summer's art installations - "Unbounded II" by Rachel Mica Weiss in Canalfront Park and "Efflorescence" by Kate Dodd in George H.P. Smith Park. We would like to address questions as well as your thoughts about future projects. 


Free Parking is available. Masks are required in all U of D buildings.  We hope to see you there for a great discussion! Let’s all learn from each other
