Are you an artist curious about the Public Art Process? Join the UMass Arts Extension Service (AES) for a free, evening-long "Introduction to the Public Art Process" workshop. Public Art projects, whether they are free-standing artworks or community-engagement projects, are excellent opportunities for Western Massachusetts artists to expand their vision, be paid to make art, build their portfolio, and have their work seen by a diverse audience within our region and beyond.
Open to artists of all mediums interested in creating public art projects, participants will receive a broad overview of the unique issues, skills needed, and steps required to create a competitive public art project application at the local and national level Admission is free, but pre-registration is required:
