In celebration of Chicago's official Year of Public Art, this seminar will explore the city's murals, commemorative statues, architectural sculpture, commercial decorations, and park designs through a series of walking tours. We will pay special attention to the role of public art in shaping the civic, national, and ethnic identities of its audiences, and we will consider the role of public art in promoting tourism, commerce, and political agendas. Ten sessions.
Diane Dillon is Director of Exhibitions and Major Projects at the Newberry. She holds a PhD in the history of art from Yale University.
You do not need to prepare anything for the first class session.
