“Public Art in Our Towns & Cities” Now A Podcast
Our March edition of Spotlight on Arts & Culture “What’s New with Public Art in our Cities and Towns?” is now available as a podcast at https://bit.ly/SpotlightPublicArt. This program, celebrating the opening of the Bridgeport Public Art Fund, providing resources, guidance, and hands-on support for new public art in Bridgeport, also clues us in to what is new on the Public Art front in four other towns. Our guests were: Phil Kuchma, Bridgeport; Marc Alan, Norwalk Arts Commission, Tatiana Mori, Greenwich Arts Council; Kathie Motes Bennewitz, Westport Arts Advisory Committee; and Lynne Colatrella, Stamford Downtown. Topics included public and private partnerships to fund public art; integrating monuments with contemporary art, creating digital guides, and encouraging storytelling, learning and other events around public art.
