Fall 2013 Public Art In Focus
Cary Visual Art is pleased to announce this fall’s upcoming Public Art in Focus (PAF) program! PAF offers the opportunity for local individuals and small groups to engage with the community through interactive walking tours of the 12 sculptures in our Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition, enjoy artist lectures, attend workshops, and much more! Participation in PAF encourages the growth of culture and community in Cary, making it a beautiful and pleasant place to live.
PAF is ideal for small groups of senior citizens, school groups, civic groups, or individuals with special needs. All activities can be customized to the needs of the participants and may be broken up over the course of several days. In the past, Public Art In Focus artist-led workshops and tours have included activities such as limestone carving with Paris Alexander for the day center for disabled individuals, Pathways for People; as well as lectures by NC artists Mark Gordon and Tom Grubb. “Art Mile” activities in the warmer months encourage youth and adults alike to get outside and explore through sculptural trivia around downtown Cary.
All workshops are free and open to the public, though donations are welcomed. The PAF Lecture series is co-sponsored by the Town of Cary and is supported in part by a grant from the Lazy Daze Arts & Crafts Festival.
