Public Art, Placemaking, and Controversy Bike Tour

Focus Area:
Format: Mobile Workshop
Full Description: While New Orleans has always been a city of art and culture, the City has seen a proliferation of works by famous and soon-to-be famous artists in recent years. This workshop will pass through iconic New Orleans neighborhoods to visit a variety of public art installations and programmatic sites along major corridors and public spaces, including privately maintained artwork. The workshop will include the former locations of removed Confederate-era monuments, discussing the process of removal and future plans for those sites. Participants will learn about social relevancies of past and present public art and public spaces and how the City is dealing with objectionable public art and evolving cultural values in the community. Presented by Arts Council of New Orleans.
