Most communities agree that public art adds value to a community, but how do you encourage the arts to really flourish in a community? Steps need to be taken to legitimize the art and a plan needs to be put in place for how you’d like your community to engage in their public spaces. Hear from two people on the ground in their communities fostering the arts in different ways as well as a seasoned architect and urban designer who has helped New England communities develop strategies to embrace art and increase the enjoyment of public space.
