Art Works: When Art Builds Community

New York’s dynamic and diverse arts and cultural organizations contribute significantly to the livability of the neighborhoods they inhabit. They provide opportunities for nurturing creativity and artistic expression; they reinforce placemaking; they stimulate economic activity; and, in many cases, they provide a rich cultural connection for residents.  This panel will explore the symbiotic relationship between arts institutions and their communities.  The panel will be moderated by author and filmmaker Carole Rifkind, following an introduction by Susan K. Freedman, president of the Public Art Fund.   Panelists for the Art Works: When Art Builds Community discussion include Anne Pasternak, president and artistic director of Creative Time; Thelma Golden, director and chief curator for the Studio Museum of Harlem, Lisa Phillips, director of the New Museum of Art, Randall Bourscheidt, president of Alliance for the Arts, and Ethel Sheffer, principal at Insight Associates. *photo credit: Giles Ashford
