Public Art and Urban Redevelopment
Public art can revive urban spaces and change the relationship between citizens and the place they live. The incorporation of art into the public sphere can engage new audiences and has the potential to create a sense of civic pride and ownership. Join us as Vivian Zavataro, Interim Director of the John and Geraldine Lilley Museum of Art, and Megan Berner, Public Art Program Coordinator for the City of Reno discuss the impact of public art from the interventions of Prime Minister Edi Rama’s work in Tirana, Albania to the local streets of Reno.
The Art Bite lecture series is supported by Nevada Humanities with additional sponsorship and free admission for students supported by the Core Humanities Program at the University of Nevada, Reno.
