Art in the Open

The world of public art hangs on a fascinating balance between reflecting the artist’s intention, drawing the viewer’s attention, and complementing its surroundings – all while drawing the expected “Is that art?” response from community members and visitors alike.

Local artists Mary Lucking, Bob Adams, and Laurie Lundquist, as well as Los Angeles-based team MERGE Conceptual Design will meet at SMoCA Lounge in Scottsdale to discuss the triumphs and challenges of creating public artwork. Each has contributed to temporary and permanent installations in and around Phoenix.

The panel, moderated by architects Matthew and Maria Salenger, is part of SMoCA’s ongoing Artists on Artists series and gives creative types the opportunity to talk about their own work and other examples from around the globe.
