With Steven D. Lavine, Kelley Lindquist and Thom Mayne

Launching an ongoing series of investigations into the role of creativity in contemporary life, CalArts President Steven D. Lavine hosts a panel discussion that centers on the question “What is the overarching role of artists in civic life and creative placemaking?” Joining the conversation are Kelley Lindquist, president of Artspace in Minneapolis and a developer of affordable artist housing throughout the U.S., and Pritzker Prize-winning architect Thom Mayne. Together, they explore issues of gentrification, reclamation and the artists’ influence and impact on today’s urban fabric. In addition, the panel examines the ideas and opportunities driving the Broadway Arts Center, a proposed mixed-use development containing a black-box theater, an art gallery, creative commercial space and affordable housing for artists in downtown Los Angeles.
