Public Art Symposium

Chicago’s Department of Cultural Affairs & Special Events welcomes all members of the public to discuss current issues in public art and the unveiling of Chicago’s new Public Art Plan, the first major revision to the Public Art Program since the creation of the city’s historic Percent for Art Ordinance in 1978. The Symposium and the Plan are the culmination of Chicago’s Year of Public Art celebration marking the fiftieth anniversary of two of its most important monuments of public art, the Chicago Picasso and the Wall of Respect, and the commissioning of new artworks in each of Chicago’s fifty wards. 

This symposium is presented as part of Art Design Chicago, an exploration of Chicago’s art and design legacy, an initiative of the Terra Foundation for American Art with presenting partner The Richard H. Driehaus Foundation.
