Panel Discussion: The Commons: 15 Artists 15 Spaces. Art After Dark. Norton Museum of Art. West Palm Beach. April 2022.

The City of West Palm Beach’s ArtLife Committee commissioned 15 local artists to create temporary works that bring to light our community’s need to reconnect with one another during the pandemic. The project encouraged artists to reimagine our public spaces, reflect and respond on a localized level to a global crisis, while offering the artists monetary relief. One of the 15 artists was asked to create a final short documentary that would play a vital role in producing a shared cultural memory of our pandemic times.

This screening will be followed by a Panel Discussion with artists Emilio AponteSierra, Ates IsildakDana Donaty, and Robert Fehre and moderated by Sybille Welter.
