[Source: Phoenix Art Museum] — “Transforming Spaces into Destinations” is the title of Janet Echelman’s public lecture on February 10, 2009, beginning at 7 p.m. at the Phoenix Art Museum. Echelman is an eminent international artist known for sculpting exciting public spaces. Her work has been installed in a dozen nations throughout Asia, Europe, and North America.
Major new artworks have helped to turn urban spaces into must see destinations and the new Downtown Civic Space near Central and Van Buren with its monumental sculpture by Echelman will accomplish that in Phoenix. Her presentation at museum will be the first time Ms. Echelman discusses her work with Phoenix residents.
