Supporting the Art Community in the City of Palo Alto with Elise DeMarzo

If These Walls Could Talk

 – 

Episode #3

Summary
Part Two of an Interview with Elise DeMarzo (@edavyne), Director of the Public Art Program for the City of Palo Alto. In this episode, we will discuss how Palo Alto supports its artist community and how they plan years in advance to integrate artwork into to the building process. We explore the fine line between accommodating the positive psychological impact art can have on a community and the merit of more challenging, thought provoking pieces. We also discuss the benefits of temporary art, and how a short time frame can allow for more experimentation and spectacle.
