Marking its 30th anniversary, Mural Arts is looking back at its history and forward towards participatory projects that explore the social and experimental dimension of art in public space. Artists Lucy + Jorge Orta and Mural Arts' Executive Director Jane Golden discuss the October 5th premiere of 70 x 7 The Meal, act XXXIV, to be staged on the grounds of Independence National Historical Park
What We Sow takes the future of Mural Arts beyond a genre-specific format and expands on the social and civic foundation of the mural tradition by addressing the relationship between local communities, regional ecologies, global economies, and the politics of food production.
Moderated by Dr. Janet Kaplan, Director of Curatorial Studies
By working with contemporary artists who are at the forefront of public art, and of community-based co-production, Mural Arts aims to catalyze new networks and new participants from all social backgrounds who have a shared interest in finding spaces for civic engagement based on active dialogue and collective experience.
