Encouraging Partnership between artists and the public, ART MAKES PLACE was a year-long project whereby seven artists made seven temporary, community and performance-based artworks for public spaces in Nashville.
AMP projects address the artist’s role in society and how artists help to create a sense of place and identity within a society. Each project begins with a lecture/workshop with public school students, continues with participation from Vanderbilt University and the larger Nashville community, and results in a temporary artwork presented in public spaces throughout Nashville. The year-long project culminated with this exhibit.
Nashville Cultural Arts Project organized AMP. NCAP collaborative partners include Metro Nashville Public Schools, Frist Center for the Visual Arts and Vanderbilt University. AMP funding and assistance comes from Metro Nashville Arts Commission, Vanderbilt University, Elizabeth Firestone Graham Foundation and the Frist Center for the Visual Arts.
