On buildings and sidewalks, in parks and on subways, public art is subject to far more intense popular scrutiny than art in galleries or museums. Join leading scholars and artists to examine how art in public spaces can serve as a flash point for larger social debates, featuring:

Audrey Flack, a nationally recognized painter and sculptor

Ohad Meromi, an internationally exhibited sculptor

Harriet Senie, Director of Art Museum Studies, City College of New York

Kendal Henry, Director of the NYC Department of Cultural Affairs’ Percent for Art Program

Michele Bogart (moderator), Professor, Stony Brook University
