The Public Art Discussion Series is an opportunity to discuss critical topics in public art. Hear from field experts and peers, network with artists, and participate in the discussion. Be ready to ask questions and share stories of your experiences with colleagues and experts in the field. The series is open to artists from all over New England, and from all levels of public art experience. Sessions generally take place in Boston or other locations around New England.
