"Public Art in a Nutshell" workshops

Register soon for the Office's free workshop Public Art in a Nutshell. Space is limited. The workshop is designed for visual artists interested in making the transition from studio art to public art. Experienced public artists Cheryl dos Remedios and Horatio Hung-Yan Law will talk about the skills and strategies they draw upon to realize creative and successful projects for public spaces. The workshop is 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Saturday, April 19 at the Central Library, 1000 Fourth Ave.

The workshop inaugurates the Office's 2008 public art workshop series. A June workshop, Behind Panel Doors, will demystify the public art application and artist selection process. In September, Getting it Made, will offer tips to visual and public artists interested in learning more about working with a fabricator to see a project from concept to construction. In November, Green Art? What Does "Sustainable Design" Mean in Public Art? will discuss the implications of green design for public artists.

To register for Public Art in a Nutshell, contact Eleanor Beerman, (206) 233-3930.
