Leadership Series | Arts Partnerships and The Transformation of Cities

ArtTable is pleased to invite members and friends to our Second Annual Leadership Series at the New School: Arts Partnerships and the Transformation of Cities

Co-presented by The Vera List Center for Art and Politics and The New School
Responding to both the political climate and economic development of our time, this panel discussion is organized to address the place and role of the visual arts in a city’s overall future. Our discussion features six distinguished women whose work is involved with designing, creating, and developing partnerships and programs that bring artists and artistic activity into the dialogue with community and economic development, so that arts and culture are fully represented as having an integral and central role in a community’s overall future. Christy MacLear will moderate. Panelists Laurie Beckelman, Sarah Calderon, Eva Franch i Gilabert, Regina R. Smith and Deborah Rappaport represent a cross-section of America’s cities and bring to the table their unique perspective on the issues—financial, ideological and creative—that occupy the territory between economic and community development and artistic creation.
