Public Art and the Urban Landscape featuring Jane Golden & Maurice Cox

 Registration is closed for this event

What role does a city have when it comes to public art making?

Jane Golden founded what is now Mural Arts Philadelphia in 1984 as city-sanctioned initiative to combat Philadelphia's widespread graffiti problem. With Jane's leadership, Mural Arts has grown from a small city agency to the nation's largest public art program.

As the director of the City of Detroit's Planning and Development Department, Maurice Cox is helping to strengthen Detroit's neighborhoods, supporting economic opportunity and growth while connecting to the city's rich creative heritage.

Jane and Maurice will reflect on their experiences about how arts and culture drive inclusive cities, where cities and artmaking intersect, and potential pitfalls. 

Moderated by Robert Goodspeed, Assistant Professor of Urban Planning, University of Michigan
