DAG ART TALK (article first published : 2002-07-19)

Professor Cheryl McKay Dixon, chairperson of the Art Dept. at Dillard University in New Orleans is a participant in the South African National Cultural Heritage Project between the United States and South Africa and is spending a month working at the Durban Art Gallery in Durban. Her career has included public art policy and museum management. She is also a practising artist.

The topic of her talk is the development of public art in a sub-tropical, multi cultural environment on a shoestring budget. The emphasis is on collaboration across communities and between artists and public-private partnerships. Cheryl was chairman of percent for the arts committee (public art programme for council of New Orleans) for six years.

This committee administered a range of activities that exposed the general public to the works of local artists. Works placed in public buildings, parks, waterfront. Slides of artworks will be shown as well as a video of the most recent collaboration.

The talk which is organised by The Friends of the Durban Art Gallery will be held on July 24 in Durban Art Gallery at 19h—for 19h30. Entry R15 (R5 for students).
