Public Art

Last night was another session of the Public Art Academy workshop I am taking.  We had guest artists come in and talk about their experiences doing public art and how they jumped into it.  And we got to see the actual proposals for some public art.

 My bookclub buddy and mosaic artist extraordinaire, Reham Aarti, was one of the guest artists to speak.

Above is the proposal for the installation at Idaho Ice World.  Below is the proposal for the mural that was at 8th and Main for some time. I believe both of these were by Byron Folwell.

 Several different proposals for different projects.

Above is the proposal for a kinetic sculpture that will be built in Julia Davis Park.  Below is Mark Baltes, who has completed several public art pieces around town.  He discussed some of his projects and how he came up with the ideas and how he works on a proposal.

I have been enjoying this workshop and learning a lot.
