SFAI Executive Director:
The Santa Fe Midtown Studio is a combined CFA and SAAP course that will investigate creative placemaking, urban planning and design, and social practice in the context of the Midtown Site- a 64 acre parcel in the geographic center of Santa Fe, formerly the College of Santa Fe or Santa Fe University of Art and Design. Classes will primarily be at the Santa Fe Art Institute (SFAI) and will include lectures, community meetings, and workshops with artists in residence, local artists, City staff, interested developers, and community partners. The final project will result in artistic and design interventions that address the physical barriers limiting connectivity of the property with surrounding neighborhoods. Students will present those interventions and encourage interaction during a Community Fair in the summer of 2020.
