2020 Visions: Public Art in a Year of Protests & Pandemics
The Julio Fine Arts Gallery of Loyola University Maryland invites you to join us on Thursday, November 19 at 6PM for 2020 Visions: Public Art in a Year of Protests & Pandemics a conversation with visiting speaker and current Golden Triangle Business Improvement District’s Public Space Activation Curator, Karyn Miller.

A global pandemic left many museums, theatres, and cultural institutions shuttered and pushed much of public life outdoors creating a great moment for people to experience public art. Simultaneously, protests and a racial reckoning sparked debate around public statues as Confederate monuments were toppled and burned and public artworks, most notably murals, were used to amplify the Black Lives Matter movement. While these two forces are distinct and different, both serve to make 2020 a notable year for public art. This talk will look at those two forces, alongside specific project examples and moments of note, and how they have shaped the landscape of public art in 2020.

This program is supported in part by the Maryland State Arts Council (msac.org).
