Join Boston’s real estate and arts community for an interactive evening to explore how public and private art can be more effectively integrated into residential and commercial developments, and public open spaces. The panel session will be followed by a cocktail reception and an opportunity to view the contemporary works on display in Boston Art’s gallery.
Integrating art into development is a multi-disciplinary process that offers both tangible and intangible benefits to developers, building owners, tenants, and the broader community. If chosen thoughtfully, artwork can reflect a corporate identity or mission, indicate a change in building ownership or management, weave together the past and present in an emerging neighborhood, and/or strengthen the sense of community. Local leaders in public and private art advising, architecture, and development will discuss the changing trends and challenges of placing art in different spaces and across industries, explore ways to more effectively integrate artwork into development, and share their experiences in working with artists and other available resources.
