Video of SAM panel on future of public space streaming online

Missed Seattle Art Museum’s recent panel on the “Future of Public Space” at Olympic Sculpture Park? Watch the Seattle Channel video:

The panel asked questions such as “who is the ‘public’ in public space?” and “how can public spaces become more sustainable?”  The conversation also touched on the Seattle Center’s recent international urban design contest for public space at the center.

Panelists included Seattle Arts Commissioner Michael Seiwerath, the executive director of Capitol Hill Housing Foundation; Margaret O’Mara, historian with the Department of History, University of Washington; and Julie Parrett, landscape architect. Marcie Sillman of KUOW 94.9 FM moderated the panel.

The discussion was part of SAM’s Art and Environment series. The event was sponsored by the Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs and presented in close collaboration with AIA Seattle, Seattle Center, and the University of Washington College of Built Environments.
