Forecast Public Art and @publicartreview are featuring SOS (Safety Orange Swimmers) by my collaborative project @anjartndesign in PAR’s 40th anniversary issue which we just received! SOS is included in a survey called “Powerful Spaces; 15 Projects / 103” on the future of public art. You can order your copy of this special edition here and read interviews with artists at the leading edge of community-engaged design and much more! Special thanks go to @fortpointarts and @friendsoffortpointchannel for commissioning #SOSSwimmers!
Issue 58 from Forecast: ”
Readers often tell us that they love our “Projects We Love” department, so we began this issue with the simple idea to add more pages and fill them almost entirely with inspiring works. A theme emerged early in our process; the editorial team was drawn to the work of artists and designers using their unique ability as creative visionaries, problem-solvers, and meaning-makers to create powerful and timely spaces. Over 103 pages devoted exclusively to 15 projects—whether in Alabama or Alaska, Brownsville or Boston, Buenos Aires or Madrid—you’ll discover how artists and designers created 15 public art and creative placemaking projects that connect us to our shared humanity.
Also moving are insights from community leaders Nia Umoja, who shares how a community is developing its own model for sustainability, and Joseph Claunch, who describes how artists led the development of a community park.”
