ArtTable @ The New School: Arts Partnerships and the Transformation of Cities - Leadership Series

Monday, October 23, 2017 at 6:00 pm

John L. Tishman Auditorium, University Center 63 Fifth Avenue, Room U100, New York, NY 10003

Organized by ArtTable and co-presented with the Vera List Center for Art and Politics, the Center for New York City Affairs, and The New School, Arts Partnerships and the Transformation of Cities is a panel discussion focused on the vital role of the visual arts in a city’s overall future. The panel brings together six distinguished women who have worked to design and establish partnerships and programs that bring artists and artistic activity into dialogue with community authorities and the private sector. In addressing the complexities of such collaborations, these leaders ensure that artistic communities are fully represented and have an integral role in the preservation and growth of a city’s infrastructure. This event is the second in a series of annual public programs organized by ArtTable in collaboration with The New School.  

Christy MacLear, Art Agency, Partners, will moderate. Panelists will include: Laurie Beckelman, The Shed; Sarah Calderon, Art Place America; Eva Franch i Gilabert, Storefront for Art and Architecture; Deborah Rappaport, Minnesota Street Project; and Regina R. Smith, Kresge Foundation. These panelists each represent a cross-section of America’s cities and bring a unique perspective to the financial, creative, and ideological implications of economic and cultural development.
