12 | Public Art - now hiring artists
Have you ever stopped to think about the logistics behind that monumental sculpture you walk past or the murals you drive by on the way to work? I have Shannon on the podcast to explain the ins and outs of public art. She explains how public art can impact a community and our memory of a place, but also why public art commissions should be utilized by more artists.
