Get smART with the Arts Council of Johnson County!
Join us for smART exchange at the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art featuring Hesse McGraw, artist and Vice President for Exhibition & Public Programs at San Francisco Art Institute; Mel Ziegler, artist and Department of Art Chair for Vanderbilt University; and Joe Waters, Bureau Chief & Director of Facilities for Johnson County Government. They will lead a conversation about public art’s role in quality of life and creating a dynamic, vibrant and engaging place to live and work. The panel will also discuss the development of a new Master Plan for Johnson County’s 1% for Public Art Program.
The program begins at 7 pm. After the discussion join us for a reception, including light hors d’oeuvres and refreshments, at 8:00 pm in the Museum’s Café Tempo. Co-sponsored by the Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art, Johnson County Community College, this event is free and open to the public.
smART exchanges are opportunities to explore topics relevant to our regional and local arts communities and to connect creative individuals of all genres with each other and other professionals. Topics will have a wide range from convening to convening but each individual exchange will explore a specific theme, seek good debate, promote exploration and yield results that are not always predictable.
