Creative placemaking in higher education
April 23 & 24th, 2020
Location: Palmer Museum of Art, Curtin Road, University Park, PA
Make:Place is a two-day-long event in which artists, curators, academics, arts administrators, and students explore how works of public art on campus can strengthen connection to place, explore challenging contemporary questions, and invite student engagement. Inspired by the Campus Arts Initiative Strategic Planning Seed Grant–celebrating its first round of successful installations in spring 2020—Make:Place investigates the role of public art in the university setting; invites artists involved in these projects to share their experiences; and charts a path forward to create a sustainable culture of public art commissioning at Penn State.
