  • What Can We Learn From 1767 Public Art Projects?

    Contains 2 Component(s) Includes a Live Web Event on 02/20/2020 at 3:00 PM (EST)

    There is very little national data about the development of public art projects. Common questions that arise are around budget sizes and expenditures, and funding mechanisms to name a few. During this webinar, data points culled from 1,767 applications submitted through PAN Year in Review over the past decade will help provide a national perspective to these questions. Focusing on applications for public art projects located in the United States, the Americans for the Arts Research team in collaboration with the Public Art and Civic Design program staff have pulled observational data points relating to budgets sizes and expenditures, public and private funding types, permanent and temporary project types, and the kinds of materials commonly used.

  • When Artists and Municipalities Partner for the Public Good

    Contains 2 Component(s) Includes a Live Web Event on 02/19/2020 at 3:00 PM (EST)

    How can artists and municipal leaders work together to bring innovative creative capacities to achieve civic goals, improve the workings of government, and benefit community residents? Artists and municipal leaders are partnering to address city-wide mandates such as racial equity. They are helping change perceptions of municipal departments and disinvested neighborhoods. They are developing art projects that address wide ranging issues in public health, environment, and police relations. And more! To support these dynamic partnerships, A Blade of Grass and Animating Democracy have developed the Municipal-Artist Partnership Guide. Just released, it aims to assist municipal agency leaders, artists, and arts agency leaders in navigating this often-complicated partnership work and to achieve positive and powerful artistic and community results. Webinar participants will hear partnership pointers related to My Park, My Pool, My City, a three-year artist residency in which artists partnered with the Austin’s (TX) Parks and Recreation Aquatics Division, activating and amplifying civic engagement around the future of Austin’s city pools. This story will illuminate some of the guiding principles, values, and quality practices featured in the guide. Animating Democracy and A Blade of Grass will highlight selections from the trove of Nuts and Bolts, partnership profiles, and model documents and tools.

    About this Coffee Chat

    Americans for the Arts is excited to bring you a monthly series of informal discussions about supporting individual artists. As part of Americans for the Arts ongoing program, Arts Administrators Essentials: Supporting Individual Artists, these monthly "Coffee Chats" are your opportunity to hear from individuals and organizations in the arts and culture field that support individual artists as part of their everyday work. Each month, we will bring you a new topic to support your work with artists. Our topic for January 2020 will be about copyright for artists.

    How can artists protect their work through copyright law?

    Join Luke Blackadar, Director of Legal Services for the Arts and Business Council of Greater Boston, as he discusses the ins and outs of copyright for artists including: copyright basic rights and registration, copyright use and licensing, and fair use.

    This project is supported in part by the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation.
