Lecture Description

This lecture explores the interplay between art and protest movements, gentrification, and issues of community control through the lens of the Public Art Movement with particular focus on the claiming of space by Latinx people in urban areas and the relationships they built across racial and ethnic lines as they participated in the diverse public art movement in their cities. This talk also considers the various ways that public art may be protected through zoning and environmental law.
