The Office for Public Art, in collaboration with Riverlife, will host In Conversation at Allegheny Landing, an exploration of the public art and civic design legacy of this unique riverfront park. The event will feature a tour of Allegheny Landing and its sculpture park, and a moderated conversation between architectural historian Charles Rosenblum, art consultant Alice Snyder, and art historian Alex Taylor. Snyder was the lead consultant for the commissioning of four artworks sited at Allegheny Landing’s sculpture park in the 1980s. Rosenblum’s, Snyder’s, and Taylor’s conversation will focus on the history, development, and future of the park and its sculptures. A light breakfast will be served.
