Open Arts LES 2020 Interview
One part of our work are projects that take a very long time to develop, always in collaboration with local communities and social service organizations… The other part is a program that helps early career artists develop their first public art project… but all in an effort to really connect public art with people’s lives. We believe, especially in times like this one, that art that can be there. Artists have vision – and if we can try to give voice to that vision, form to that vision, I think that will help us find creative solutions to social, political, economic problems. – Micaela Martegani
