On tap this week is Julia Muney Moore, Director of Public Art at the Arts Council of Indianapolis. Julia directs and manages all aspects of public art programs for the Arts Council of Indianapolis, including project development, execution, and maintenance of individual works of art. She talks about how artists can work with neighborhoods and communities to not just enhance shared spaces but to draw attention with the artwork to what makes those areas unique and important.
Julia offered several interesting Look-Ups, including:
Exploring Our Town (NEA) – artists & projects in communities - https://www.arts.gov/exploring-our-town/
“Dinner for One” (1963) comedy short that’s become a “baffling New Year’s tradition for all of Europe” - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zVd_VLO9xcc
Art Place America – source for projects and “field scans” on creative placemaking - https://www.artplaceamerica.org
Springboard for the Arts – toolkits for creative projects - https://springboardforthearts.org
