Why do we need public art in the city?

Event: Why do we need public art in the city?

Organizer: Héritage Montréal

Type: Conference

Place: Montréal

Date: 22 January 2014

Presentation: Heritage Montreal proposes a discussion on public art, more specifically on the contribution of works of art to public spaces. Well-established in the urban landscape, works of public art are symbols that have inhabited the daily lives of Montrealers for generations. They are part of the public space, which raises questions about their relevance. Are they meaningful and inspirational for citizens? What role do they play in building the city's identity?
