This program brings together three artists whose work is connected to the past, present, and future of public art on the Williams College campus: Alice Aycock, Ursula von Rydingsvard, and Rona Pondick. Presented online via Zoom in conjunction with the exhibition Landmarks.
Artists Alice Aycock, Ursula von Rydingsvard, and Rona Pondick come together in conversation with Pamela Franks, director of the Williams College Museum of Art, Lisa Dorin, deputy director and curator of contemporary art, and Elyse Mack (MA ’20), curator of In The Public Eye, a recent exhibition at the Williams College Museum of Art that explores the development and reception of three public art projects at Williams College.
