ArtPlace America was formed three years ago as a collaboration of foundations, federal agencies, and banks to accelerate the creative placemaking movement.  This session will explore lessons and ideas captured in that time and also provide an update on ArtPlace America and where we think the movement is headed.  Lyz Crane of ArtPlace America will be joined by representatives from two grantee projects sharing their own ideas and experiences with the initiative: Kimberly Driggins from the Office of Planning of the District of Columbia discussing the Arts & Culture Temporiums project; and Lori Lobenstine from the Design Studio for Social Intervention and Max MacCarthy from the Upham’s Corner Main Street discussing work in Upham’s Corner, Boston.
