Anne Delaney, Public Art Reston executive director, will make a presentation about the organization and about best practices for public art projects as part of the LRA Speakers series at Reston Community Center, Hunters Woods on Friday, April 20th at 7:30pm.
Public Art Reston, formerly known as Initiative for Public Art – Reston or IPAR, was founded in 2007. Public Art Reston seeks to inspire an ongoing commitment to public art and create a new generation of artworks in Reston. It imagines public art throughout Reston that inspires the community and engages the mind and senses. Best Practices For Public Art Projects is a resource developed by Public Art Network, a program of Americans for the Arts. The presentation features a clear set of standards for administrators, artists and other public art professionals. The Event is open to the public.
