Other (outside main areas)


Public Dialogue explored the ever-increasing role that artists, creative professionals, cultural organizations, and anchor institutions play in the growth and fostering of communities. The focus is on the urban landscape, both the built environment and the spaces in between. 

Through an exhibition, public reading room, and series of curated conversations, cultural producers and the public will engage with the theoretical and actual concepts behind this movement.

Curated by Allison Glenn and Dara Epison
