Public Art Lecture Series :: Art Gallery of Alberta

Presented by the Art Gallery of Alberta with support from the Edmonton Arts Council.

This ongoing lecture series features artists and curators who are contributing to public art in the city of Edmonton. Speakers will provide an overview of their practice, as well as give insight into their work in this region.

Public art is considered a key component of the attractiveness and identity of a city. It demonstrates the character of communities, strengthens the local economy through an investment in the arts, and is a reflection of a progressive municipality.
