Public Art Workshops

Public artist and designer, Joel Breaux will host a series of workshops to help artists navigate the complex world of public art. These workshops will provide artists with critical tools necessary to successfully navigate the competitive proposal process, and offer guidance on best practices for engineering and fabricating projects that meet and exceed stakeholder expectations.

All-day sessions, designed for artists of any discipline who want to gain knowledge about the nuts and bolts of public art and placemaking, will take place at sites across the state.  Following the lecture and discussion workshop sessions, two all-day site visit field trips will introduce attendees to fabricators, engineers, and visits to nearby examples of public art/fabrication.
