Demystifying Public Art with Lynn Basa

December 17, 2015 - 7:00pm

Led by artist Lynn Basa, this 90-minute webinar covers all aspects of researching and applying for public art commissions for visual artists. Questions answered include:

* Is public art for me?  
* How do I find public art commissions?
* How does the selection process work?
* Does it require any special skills?
* Is it worth my while?
* Am I selling out if I make art for the general public?

Lynn Basa is a full-time artist living in Chicago.  Her practice is focused on painting and public art.  Formerly an instructor in the Sculpture department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, she is currently attending graduate school at SAIC in its new Low-Residency MFA program.  She has completed over 50 public and private commissions and is the author of The Artist’s Guide to Public Art: How to Find and Win Commissions (2008).  Her most recent project is curating an experimental storefront installation/performance space for artists who create immersive, multi-sensory artworks based on the principles found in John Dewey’s book, Art as Experience.
