Public Art Forum Set for April 3


ROCK HILL, S.C. - Winthrop University Galleries in collaboration with the Dalton Downtown Arts Initiative will host the 2nd Annual Public Art Forum Thursday, April 3, at 7 p.m. at Winthrop’s Plowden Auditorium located in Withers/W.T.S. Building.

Featured speakers are Daniel P. Gottlieb, director of planning and design at the North Carolina Museum of Art, and Juan Logan, artist and associate professor of art at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Gottlieb will present the background and development associated with the Museum Art Park on the museum grounds in Raleigh, N.C. Logan will detail the ongoing plans and development for the North Carolina Freedom Monument, a public art park commemorating the contributions of African-Americans which is scheduled for construction adjacent to the North Carolina State House in Raleigh.

The DDAI Public Art Forums are presented to provide information about how carefully planned public art and design can have a lasting and positive impact on a community. DDAI and this forum are made possible in part by Becca and Harry Dalton, and the South Carolina Arts Commission, which receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts. Additional support is provided by Clinton College, the College of Visual and Performing Arts and the patrons of Winthrop University Galleries, with special support from Robert Breakfield and Jo Sherrill Dickert.
