    Shelly Willis, director of the Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission’s Art in Public Places Program, gives a free lecture as part of Sacramento State's The Profession of Art Lecture Series. Willis has supervised public arts programs in Fairfield and at the University of Minnesota, published essays on public art, is co-editor of Public Art Practice, and oversees Sacramento airport’s art program, the largest such project in county history.

    Willis came to Sacramento after six years of managing the University of Minnesota public art program where she directed the development and installation of temporary and permanent public artworks on campus throughout the University of Minnesota system. She developed a public art minor program at the University, the first program of its kind in the United States, and taught courses in public art in the Department of Urban Studies and the Department of Landscape Architecture. Among other writings, her essay on the state of public art education in the United States was published by Americans for the Arts in the book Public Art by the Book, edited by Barbara Goldstein.

    This event will take place in the Kadema Hall Room 145 on the Sacramento State Campus.
