Artist Talk by Stephen Marc: Passage On the Underground Rail Road
Wednesday, September 5, 2012 at 7:00 pm
Free and open to the public. Seating is first-come, first-served.

“Over the course of a decade and across 32 states, photographer and digital artist Stephen Marc followed the Underground Railroad, the network of people and places that served as a gateway to freedom during slavery in the American South.

Tracing its history, its interconnected web of stories, of faces, lives, homes, caves, and passageways, Marc followed and photographed the routes of the freedom seekers, creating from these powerful images a thread of narratives. Stephen Marc: Passage On the Underground Railroad, an exhibition of Marc’s compelling and visually expansive digital documentary montages, will be on view in Norton Photography Gallery through September 23, 2012.”

Phoenix Art Museum
Artist talk by Matthew Moore
Wednesday, February 15, 2012 at 7:00 pm

Free and open to the public.  Seating is first come, first served.

“An Arizona-based artist and farmer, Matthew Moore (b. 1976) is the last of four generations to farm his family’s land. Through his art, using the legacy and scale of Land Art, Moore explores the loss of farmland to urban growth in the metropolitan Phoenix area, as well as contemporary consumers’ alienation from the basic principles of agriculture. And the Land Grew Quiet: New Work by Matthew Moore represents an innovative and new direction in Moore’s work, contrasting the cycles of development and speculation in our own time with those of the Great Depression by mixing technology and nature as well as fiction and history. It is conceived as a single project that maps urban growth on the land and nature’s resistance to the man-made within the sublime context of the harsh but awe-inspiring landscape and climate of central Arizona.”

This lecture is being presented in conjunction with Moore’s exhibition  And the Land Grew Quiet: New Work by Matthew Moore, on view until June 10, 2012.

May 25th, Phoenix: The Low Down Dirty Guide to Public Art: A Series of FREE Workshops

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

April 27th, PHX: Panel discussion “Photography’s Changing Media”

Phoenix Art Museum
Panel discussion lead by Rebecca Senf: Photography’s Changing Media

Wednesday, April 27, 2011, 7 pm
Admission: Free and open to the public

“Technological change is par for the course in the practice of photography. Yet, over the last decade, photographers find themselves continuously adjusting to the depletion and extinction of such basic materials as Kodachrome film and printing-out paper.

Norton Family Curator of Photography Rebecca Senf, Ph.D., leads a lively panel discussion on the topic of changing photographic materials. Four photographers whose work appears in the upcoming exhibition Pure Photography, Post-Production and Mixed Media – Thomas Barrow, Linda Connor, Harold Jones and Mark Klett – offer their experiences and insights on how digital photography and other factors have irrevocably changed their creative processes, and the look and feel of their work.”

Workshop 2: Collaborations

When:  Wednesday, April 27, 2011 6pm – 7:15pm
Where:  Phoenix Art Museum, Community Room
1625 N. Central Avenue, Phoenix, Arizona  [map]

More and more artists are being asked to deliver proposals using AutoCAD, deliver material samples that demonstrate maintainability, create plant layouts to enhance their work, design a lighting scheme to highlight the art, and engineer works to withstand the fiercest elements imaginable. This is a pretty tall order when you’re background is in visual art!

Figuring out what a project needs is one challenge but developing relationships with other design professionals to create the project is a whole other game. In this workshop, we’ll address the issue of team building from start to finish. Focusing in on the roles of each player on a design team, we’ll discuss how to make the most each other skill sets and work towards a common goal.

Artists and staff from the Phoenix Office of Arts and Culture’s Public Art Program will show examples of teams and explore the many layers of design that goes into award winning projects.
