'Public Space, Public Transit, Public Art,' free talk at UTSA-Downtown




The Tobin Center for the Performing Arts, now under construction, will bring a lot of art to downtown--some of it will be street side. To find out what might be in the works, check out this free talk:

In the summer of 2012, the UTSA College of Architecture, in partnership with the City of San Antonio’s Department of Culture and Creative Development and VIA Metropolitan Transit, was selected to receive an “Our Town” grant from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) to lead community engagement events focused on the integration of public art and public transit around the new Tobin Center for the Performing Arts. The NEA grant-funded project, titled Public Space, Public Transit, Public Art, will engage the San Antonio community in a series of public discussions which run from January through May. The series continues on Friday, February 1 with a presentation by VIA Metropolitan Transit, titled “Public Transit.”

The speakers are Jeffrey C. Arndt (Interim President and CEO, VIA) and Jorge J. Pardo (Director, Art & Design Metro Creative Services, Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority)

Free; 5 pm Friday, February 1; Durango Building Southwest Room (DB 1.124), UTSA Downtown Campus, 501 W. Cesar E. Chavez. Free parking in UTSA Lot D-3, underneath I-35.
