Art in Public Places launches second season of lecture series
Thursday, November 15, 2018 by Tai Moses
A discussion with Austin visual artist Laurie Frick on Jan. 19 will inaugurate the second season of “Visionary Voices,” Austin’s free lecture series that features conversations with public artists from around the country. Co-produced by the city’s Art in Public Places program and Texas Society of Architects, “Visionary Voices” aims to explore the role of public art in society and the blurred line where art meets architecture. Participating artists are also undertaking commissions for the city and will give the public a sneak peek of their works in progress. The other “Visionary Voices” speakers are architect and designer Marc Fornes on May 14; installation artist Janet Zweig on Aug. 13; and muralist Fidencio Duran on Oct. 15.
