🕐 1 min read

Art&Seek’s State of the Arts presents Making a Public Spectacle: Fort Worth’s Reenergized Public Art Program, with a reception to follow Friday, Sept. 27.

This one-hour discussion begins at 6 p.m. in the Kimbell Art Museum’s Pavilion Auditorium. Admission is free. No reservations are required.

Public art has the power to enliven and elevate civic spaces, provoke conversations, create social experiences that bind communities, drive tourism and spur the economy, the Kimbell said in a news release.

The updated Fort Worth Public Art Master Plan (2017) has city and community leadership poised for significant new artistic endeavors.

Learn more about proposals for iconic works of public art to be created for signature urban spaces – the first will be a high-tech video projection mapping piece on the newly restored Will Rogers Pioneer Tower.

Experts and program participants will discuss the vision for these compelling installations along with the triumphs and challenges experienced and expected, the news release said.

Moderator Jerome Weeks, senior arts reporter and producer for Art&Seek, will be joined by Doo Eun Choi, independent curator/invited curator of BIAN 2020 – International Digital Art Biennial; Benito Huerta, artist and professor at the University of Texas at Arlington; Melissa Konur, planning director, Downtown Fort Worth Inc.; and Karen Wiley, president/CEO, Arts Council of Fort Worth.

Following the panel, continue the discussion and discovery of Fort Worth public art at a reception presented in collaboration with Fort Worth’s Art Tooth at 7 p.m. Art Tooth is a local, artist-run nonprofit hybrid gallery project that develops innovative partnerships between artists, cultural spaces and local businesses.
