      2019 NoWPAC Conference "The New NW Rules of Public Art"

      2019 Northwest Public Art Consortium (NoWPAC) Conference October 23-25 Seattle, WA   The New NW Rules of Public Art   NoWPAC is an opportunity for public art administrators and artists to connect, share ideas, and celebrate what it means to be working in our field in the Northwest.   This year’s theme is The New NW Rules of Public Art. In 2013, Situations UK created the much talked about document “The New Rules of Public Art”. Meant as a tool to break down and discuss the role of art in the public realm, it has helped many rethink how they approach the work they do.    NoWPAC 2019 is asking that we redefine the “rules” for ourselves. Working in a time of changing communities, a need for equity and inclusion, staggering unaffordability, aging collections and deaccessions, questions about sustainability, and a complex political climate, what are our new benchmarks? These are some of the ideas we want to address at the conference with your help.   Join us for an opening reception plus two full days of presentations, conversations, and tours to determine the New NW Rules of Public Art.    Schedule: Wednesday, October 23rd Opening Reception at MadArt Studio 6-8pm   Thursday, October 24th Presentations and Sessions at Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute 9am-4pm   Dinners in Public Located all over Seattle from 6-8pm   Friday October 25th Presentations and Sessions at Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute (and Tours in various locations) 9am-4pm   Keynote Presenters:   Sharita Towne Sharita Towne is a transdisciplinary artist and educator based in Portland, OR, born and raised on the west coast of the U.S. along Interstate 5—from Salem, OR, to Tacoma, WA and down to Sacramento, CA.
