The Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation and More Art
More Art in the Public Eye: A Book Launch, Reading and Performances
Thursday, October 3
from 6 to 8pm
More Art in The Public Eye catalogs fifteen years of More Art’s endeavors and offers critical insight into the ever-growing field of socially engaged public art, raising the stakes for how art can meaningfully impact our collective futures. The event will include a short reading and live performances from contributing authors and artists, whose projects are documented in the publication through archival and newly sourced documentary materials. This book, by Rubin Foundation grantee More Art, is designed to provide insight into the complex process of creating public art, its evolution, and how it intervenes in the public discourse.
More Art is a New York City-based non-profit organization that supports collaborations between professional artists and communities to create public art and educational programs committed to social justice. For over 15 years, they have produced ambitious projects designed to disrupt the status quo and broaden the discourse around urgent political, social, and cultural issues. www.moreart.org
