Three seasoned public art professionals will talk about the ins and outs of employing a fabricator to help see a project from concept to construction. Public artist Pam Beyette, fabricator Larry Tate, and public art conservation specialist Tiffany Hedrick will share tips about how to select and work with a fabricator to create a lasting public artwork.
Pam Beyette is a nationally recognized public artist and art planner whose artworks have been incorporated into schools, parks, libraries, universities, transit stations and justice centers. Her inspiration is sourced from environmental, historical and cultural experiences to create site-specific artwork that defines a unique sense of place.
For more than four years Tiffany Hedrick has been facilitating and performing conservation for the city of Seattle's public art collection, which is comprised of more than 2,600 portable and nearly 360 permanent works of art. She has a background in art history and is completing a master's degree in preventive conservation.
Larry Tate is president and co-founder of Fabrication Specialties, Limited (FS, Ltd.), a nationally and internationally recognized artwork fabrication company that specializes in large-scale collaborative projects. FS, Ltd. typically works with artists during all phases of artwork fabrication and installation. Tate holds a Master's of Fine Arts from University of Washington and has conducted sculpture workshops, lectured, and served on nonprofit boards.
