Do you want to propose a public art project in Greater Boston? Hunting for funding? Unfamiliar with Boston's city standards and permissions for public art installations? Looking to network with other public artists from the Greater Boston area?
New England Foundation for the Arts and the Boston Arts Commission want to help you get your project off the ground. Join us on Wednesday, January 23, for a public art grants workshop to learn about public art funders, NEFA's Fund for the Arts and the Edward Ingersoll Browne Fund. NEFA's Public Art Coordinator, Elysian McNiff, and the Boston Arts Commission Director, Karin Goodfellow, will share insights about the process and expectations of Greater Boston-based public art funding and field questions to provide feedback on the application process. Questions about Boston-based public art permitting and installation will also be answered.
Bring your bagged lunch! Beverages will be provided.
