Led by artist Lynn Basa, this 90-minute webinar covers all aspects of researching and applying for public art commissions for visual artists. Questions answered include:
* Is public art for me?
* How do I find public art commissions?
* How does the selection process work?
* Does it require any special skills?
* Is it worth my while?
* Am I selling out if I make art for the general public?

ABOUT THE ONLINE LEARNING PROGRAM
We are proud to offer selected topics from PDP workshops to the general public through the Online Learning Program. We are dedicated to extending our reach to artists who are new to Creative Capital’s professional development offerings, as well as those PDP alumni who are interested in a refresher course. Many of these courses are designed for individual artists of all disciplines, while others will be discipline-specific.
Most Online Learning sessions will be approximately 90 minutes in duration, including lecture and Q&A sessions. Webinars are taught and moderated live by talented workshop leaders, so the information is always up-to-date and engaging. Q&A sessions are included to be sure that all our participants have the chance to follow up on specific concerns.
