muraLAB: Curating Creative Placemaking with Steve Dietz and Stephen Zacks

muraLAB will host a discussion about “Curating Creative Placemaking” — asking how projects aimed to revitalize urban spaces through quick, creative interventions are impacting the practice of public art.

Curator Steve Dietz has founded two major urban art exhibitions, 01SJ and Northern Spark, that provide platforms for public art exploration and the activation of public space. Art producer Stephen Zacks will talk about the genesis and evolution of Flint Public Art Project, an ongoing experiment in staging art interventions that inspire residents to reimagine the city, reclaim vacant and underutilized buildings and lots, and steer Flint’s long-range planning. muraLAB director Todd W. Bressi will moderate.

When: April 13, 2015, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Where: The Dornsife Center for Neighborhood Partnerships, Drexel University
3509 Spring Garden Street (19104)

Hosted by the Antionette Westphal College of Media Arts and Design, Graduate Program in Arts Administration.
