Campus Forum on Art in Public Places, March 21 at 6:30-8:30 p.m., W.T.Young Library Auditorium

Campus Forum: At in Public PlacesPlease come to – and encourage your colleagues and students to attend – a Campus Forum on March 21st 6:30-8:30 p.m. Please print out and post the attached flyer (download a flier, .pdf file here) and/or send it out via email for others to share. This Forum is co-sponsored by UGE as a continuation from last fall’s Constitution Day Town Forum on the Confederate monuments in downtown Lexington. We want to bring the conversation back to focus on our own campus.

What is the role of public art in an educational environment – especially the state’s flagship institution? How should we at UK engage with our institutional past, in terms of art already at the University of Kentucky, and any proposed future projects? Who decides about public art on campus and how is the University community involved in the process?

Those questions and more will be explored by experts in the fields of art, education and arts administration at the campus forum “Art in Public Places.” The free public event will run from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Monday, March 21, at the UK Athletics Auditorium in the William T. Young Library. See the UK News press release here:

Moderated by Stuart Horodner, the director of the UK Art Museum, a panel of scholars will include:

Please help to get the word out – we hope the event will get the campus talking about public art and its benefits to the University. The Forum is sponsored by UGE as well as the UK Art Museum and the University Senate Council.
