Faculty/Instructor Session

New this symposium: Given the complexity of effectively teaching students to produce artwork in the public sphere, the planning committee decided to hold a special session targeted toward faculty members currently teaching or interested in teaching public art and/or engaged practice. A stellar group of presenters will provide an overview of their programs, which will be followed by a discussion moderated by Loyce Arthur, University of Iowa Associate Professor in Theatre Arts.
