“The Public Conversation on the Urban Environment”: Students Meet the Artists

Pieces from Mary Miss's BROADWAY: 1000 STEPS art installation

December 2, 6-8pm, 20 Cooper Square, 7th Floor

In Fall 2014, Gianpaolo Baiocchi’s course, “The Public Conversation on the Urban Environment,” sponsored by NYU/Gallatin, offered undergraduate students the opportunity to research communities along Manhattan’s Broadway corridor and learn what kinds of environmental concerns each community had. This information was incrementally shared with teams of artists and scientists working with lead artist Mary Miss and her City as Living Laboratory to produce public art installations that will speak directly to the environmental and science learning objectives identified by the students.

Join us for a “talk-back” during which Baiocchi’s students will formally present their research and receive feedback from the artists who will be developing the installations.
