Episode: Live Culture with Martha Willette Lewis --Episode 23, january 2017

 Public Art/Art Public

Let's pretend it's summer!

This month on Live Culture we start off 2017 with a rebroadcast of Episode 4 from June 2015, which seems at once very relevant to right now and very far in the past indeed. This slice-of-warm-weather show features a conversation with Selby Nimrod, curator and project manager of Art Sites New Haven, a web-based initiative which offers interactive maps of public art in the greater New Haven area, and Laura Weir Clarke, Executive Director and Co-Founder of Site Projects, an organization which commissions international artists to do public art projects around the city of New Haven. Art Sites New Haven is a spin-off from Site Projects and offers access and information about the broad range of free, public outdoor works which surround us.

Come warm up with us next to your radio and dream of sunny excursions to sites historic and contemporary around town- or skip the mid-winter doldrums, bundle up and tour them all now!
