A recent national dialogue has been sparked by a controversial piece of public art in Saskatoon. Coverage regarding “Found Compressions One & Two” has brought various public art projects into question. No matter our individual feelings, this dialogue around public art poses larger questions:

Is public art a worthy priority for the city? What value can it add?

Public Art vs Patched potholes… can we have both? Should public art raise questions and create debate? How do we develop a cultural city?

Join us to discuss these questions and have your say in this conversation. Organized by AKA Artist-Run and PAVED arts
