Public Art: Winter 2022 Cohort

Making Your Own Career with Public Art

Today more than ever, art is an essential part of our culture and our economy. Since the COVID-19 shutdown, our cultural attention has shifted toward our public spaces, creating a growing need for local artists who can create public works. Yet, the business side of art is often left out of the conversation. 

A long-lasting professional art career requires support and development that goes beyond selecting the right materials. That means allowing these artists to gain the business and planning skills they need to work with civic leaders and architects to succeed. This was the purpose of Momentum 360: Making Your Own Career with Public Art.

The City of Durham partnered with Triangle Artworks to create a 6-week online Public Arts program where independent artists can joined a cohort of instructors and peers for collaborative learning! The course ran from January 12 - February 16, 2022, and was instructed by Cynthia Deis and David Wilson.
