 Increasingly, municipalities are demanding that new and retrofitted buildings meet green building standards. Through case studies and policy examples we will cover fundamental approaches integrating art into the design and construction of green buildings. Participants will learn key language that describes the kinds of public art that can be inserted into new or existing ordinances and comprehensive plan, as well as language for artist selection criteria. An outline of green building standards checklists and materials resources will also be covered.

This webinar is applicable to both artists and arts administrators.
