Art in Public Places
Creating art for public places has its own special challenges and rewards. In this episode of Spark, artists of different disciplines transcend the limitations of site and budget to realize their artistic visions. Choreographer and dancer Jo Kreiter mixes art and politics in a site-specific work about the history of protest on San Francisco's Market Street. In Villa Montalvo, renowned landscape artist Herb Parker works with local artists and volunteers, using sod, rammed earth and steel to create a whimsical work of land art entitled "Caracol." Lastly, watch a team of muralists from Precita Eyes (precitaeyes.org) transform white-washed stalls at the Alemany Farmer's Market in San Francisco into colorful murals that celebrate the farmers and their bounty.
This program is not currently scheduled for broadcast.
