Public Invited To ‘An Artful Celebration’ Sept. 11


The Arts in Public Places Board (APPB) will host “An Artful Celebration” Thursday evening, Sept. 11, as part of week-long events planned for Los Alamos ScienceFest.

Beginning at 5 p.m., tours of the public art housed in the Municipal Building in downtown Los Alamos will depart from the lobby. In addition, from 5 to 7 p.m., guests and residents are invited to review art proposals and provide comments to the APPB for outdoor artwork envisioned for installation on the large plaza on the west side of the Municipal Building.

The artists have been invited to be on hand to answer questions about their submittals and their vision for the artwork in the plaza. Refreshments will be served.

Tours are limited to 10 participants per group and depart every 30 minutes. They will be led by APPB members knowledgeable in the art collection found throughout the halls and suites of the municipal building.

Advance registration is requested, but not required. E-mail to reserve a spot on the tour. Walk-in tour registration begins at 4:30 p.m., in the lobby of the municipal building.
