The Role of Public Art in Thriving Communities
Two internationally recognized artists will discuss how public art transforms civic spaces and communities at a public lecture hosted by the Charleston Parks Conservancy in association with the Office of the Mayor of the City of Charleston and the City of Charleston’s Commission on the Arts.
Guest speakers are Roberto Behar and Rosario Marquardt, Miami-based founding partners of R & R Studios. They will share their approach to public art and public architecture and its relationship to civic space and the community. Their work weaves together visual arts, architecture, design and the city and produces “a public architecture that emphasizes the communal and civic dimension of life.”
“The Role of Public Art in Thriving Communities” lecture is free and open to public, but registration is required. Registration does not guarantee admission as seating is limited and available on a first come, first served basis.
