City as Site: Public Art in Richmond

September 6 - October 26, 2014

Curator: Rachel Lafo

City as Site: Public Art in Richmond is the first exhibition to highlight the City of Richmond’s Public Art Program, initiated in 1997 “to create a public art collection of the highest quality through a fair and open selection process advised by independent arms-length panels of art and design professionals and community input.”  Curated by Richmond Art Gallery Director Rachel Rosenfield Lafo, the exhibition will feature several diverse public art projects representing the different ways public art is funded in Richmond – through civic funding, private development, community projects, and the program’s newer series of temporary projects and socially engaged artist performances. The exhibition features projects by Glen Andersen, Nicole Dextras, Janet Echelman, Jacqueline Metz and Nancy Chew, and Carlyn Yandle. In addition to including models, drawings, videos, large-scale photographs, and related information about the artists and their work, the exhibition will visually document many additional works of public art in the City.

Special thanks to the City of Richmond Public Art Program for their support of this exhibition and programming.
