The City of Markham has one of the most diverse populations in Canada and a fast-developing urban environment. As part of the City’s emerging public art program, Becoming Public Art aims to develop resources for those interested in the practice of contemporary public art.
In a series of virtual sessions open to the public, professionals in the field will present the broad range of perspectives that shape public art making today.
Framed by current discussions happening at the intersection of contemporary art, public realm issues and urbanism, the summit features working models and case studies that address the challenges and opportunities faced by those working in this constantly evolving field.
