Larimer Stories: Community Engaged Art Making
February 24, 2020 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm
Gregg Hall (Porter 100)
Professor John Peña will share his experiences collaborating with senior residents of Larimer to create “Larimer Stories” a temporary public artwork. This project consisted of an exterior display structure with removable text that changed every two weeks. The text shared stories from the oldest residents of Larimer about their lives in the now rapidly developing neighborhood. This pilot project was supported by The Office of Public Art and Neighborhood Allies. Peña will discuss the goals and engagement strategies that led to his ongoing collaboration with the Larimer seniors.
