The thorny issue of public art in Calgary
From the “big blue ring” to Bowfort Towers, Calgary’s public art has been the subject of a great deal of scrutiny and debate of late. So much so that City Hall has announced that it is going back to the drawing board to design a new public art policy. So, what should that look like, and how do we ensure a process that respects taxpayers and commissions art that resonates with the public?
Join The School of Public Policy for our February Current Affairs luncheon, where a panel of experts, and you, have a say in what that process should look like.
- Ryan Bessant, President, Heavy Industries
- André Chabot, Four-term former City of Calgary Councillor for Ward 10
- Caitlind r.c. Brown & Wayne Garret, Calgary-based artists
- Jack Lucas, Program Director, Urban Policy, The School of Public Policy
