Women and the Urban Environment

Art + the Environment Panel Discussion at SAM Sculpture Park

Associate Professor Thaisa Way delivered closing remarks for this month's SAM Art and the Environment Panel: Women and the Urban Environment.  Moderated by Barbara Swift, panelists discussed how contemporary artists, landscape architects, urban planners, geographers, and those involved in development and public policy are examining, imagining, and shaping cities and women's lives in them. They also considered the responsibilities and futures of their own vocations and why it is so critical that women contribute to urban spaces.
