From The City of Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture:
The Low Down Dirty Guide to Public Art: A Series of FREE Workshops!!
Wednesdays, March 30, April 27 and May 25, 2011

Workshop 3: The Design Process

When:  Wednesday, May 25, 2011 6pm – 7:15pm
Where:  Phoenix Art Museum, Community Room
1625 N. Central Avenue, Phoenix, Arizona  [map]

Each idea is fleshed out through a series of checks and balances known as the design process. How does it work? What does it mean when you’re asked to provide a schematic design? How does that grow into a 50% submittal? And how are these stages reviewed along the way?

In this workshop, we’ll look at each step of the design process from concept to completion. Using examples of complete Public Art Projects, staff from the Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture’s Public Art Program will show the creation of projects from start to finish while explaining the steps that go into each phase between.

For more information or to register email agallego@azarts.gov or call 602.771.6530.

About the Series
If you wonder what it takes to make the leap from small-scale studio art to large scale public art, this three-part series of workshops will provide some answers. The series will break down the process of turning ideas into public works, from presentations and proposals through collaborations and the development of designs. Each workshop will feature a presentation by a local artist, a question and answer session with Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture (POAC) staff, and a brief workshop for participants. The workshops are free and open to the public courtesy of Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture, Arizona Commission on the Arts and the Phoenix Art Museum.

Workshop 1: Presentations and Proposals was on March 30th
Workshop 2: Collaborations was on April 27th
