Full Summary:

Flux Projects: Year One

Abstract:  Flux Projects began just over a year ago in 2009.  Conceived initially as a plan for developing a Nuit Blanche style of event for Atlanta, the organization quickly expanded to offering year-round programs throughout Atlanta in an effort to fuse art into the daily life of our city.  Executive Director Anne Dennington will discuss the decisions that were made, the variety of projects that have been presented (including FLUX 2010, the one-night event in the Castleberry Hill Art District), and the lessons learned along the way. Bio:  In November of 2009, Anne Dennington became the Executive Director of Flux Projects, a new organization to support artists in creating innovative temporary public art throughout Atlanta.  Dennington has deep connections to Atlanta’s arts community, having served as the first Executive Director of Atlanta Celebrates Photography (ACP) from April 2004 to September 2007, and before that as Director of The Lowe Gallery from 1997 to 2004. More recently, she has been Director of Museums for the City of Monroe, Louisiana, overseeing the Masur Museum of Art, the largest visual arts museum in northeast Louisiana, and the Cooley House. Dennington began working in public art in 2004, when she developed the public art component of ACP’s programming.  She is on the board of directors of the Metropolitan Public Art Coalition (MPAC) and also served on Mayor Shirley Franklin’s Public Art Advisory Committee in 2007.  Other community involvement includes a current position on the advisory board of ACP, as well as having served on the Louisiana Association of Museums’ Council in 2009 and the ArtPapers magazine board of directors from 1998 to 2004.
