  • ArtsU Intensive: Community, Values, and Histories in Public Art

    Contains 1 Component(s) Includes a Live Web Event on 03/04/2021 at 1:00 PM (EST)

    As monuments come down around the country and other public artworks replace them, we must grabble with what histories or values are being expressed through public art. Whether reviewing current collections or creating a new artwork, the conversation of whom and what public art represents is a necessary dialogue to have with our community members. This 3-hour intensive workshop will dive into how public art practitioners can work within their organizations to ensure that public art processes center community. This workshop will cover how to identify issues and historical context, ways to discuss sensitive topics within their organizations and with community members, and steps to take to develop an equitable community engagement plan for future public artworks.

    Sarah M. Mercer

    Shareholder Attorney

    Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck, LLP

    Sarah Mercer pairs her litigation background with her passion for local and state government to develop creative political and administrative solutions for her clients’ legal problems. She helps her clients overcome challenging and entrenched legal issues by navigating the complex and fickle political landscape.

    Through her close ties with elected officials and bureaucratic staff at all levels of local and state government, including legislative leaders, department directors, mayors, governors and attorneys general, Sarah forms connections and bridges relationships within the firm and for her clients.

    Her multi-state practice, which includes Colorado, Nevada and New Mexico, encompasses lobbying, political and regulatory advocacy, campaign finance, land use and gaming. Sarah’s involvement in several high-profile policy matters demonstrates her leadership and skill in the field. She succeeded in persuading the Colorado General Assembly to authorize private equity investment in the provision of elder care on behalf of InnovAge, which resulted in the expansion of services to Colorado’s seniors while allowing them to remain in their own homes. Sarah was also successful in the unanimous passage of state legislation which removed licensure requirements so that individuals can watch up to three pets in their homes without regulatory oversight and can more easily participate in the sharing economy through platforms like the firm’s client Rover.com. Further, her advocacy on behalf of Smart Colorado resulted in legislation that prohibits edible marijuana in forms that can be confused with traditional candy and secured a $9.2 million increase in funding for marijuana education in elementary, middle and high schools across the state.
