Imagine Austin Speaker Series: Power Up! Placemaking Through Art and Renewable Energy
Date: Wednesday, April 18, 2018
Time: 6pm - 7:30pm; sign-in begins at 5:30pm
Location: Zach-Topfer Theater, 202 South Lamar Blvd, Austin, TX
Description: The great energy transition will have an impact on our built environment, our parks, our culture, and our visual landscape like no other technical shift since the automobile. By presenting examples of utility-scale renewable energy infrastructure as public art, the Land Art Generator Initiative (LAGI) is inspiriing the public about the beauty of our sustainable future and showing policy makers and city planners that distributed energy resources can be placemaking tools, economic development drivers, and educational venues while they help to power the grid and implement a clean energy revolution. Recreational spaces like Seaholm Waterfront and parkland at the former Holly Shores Power Plan have the potential to tell the stories of power generation past and present through public art.
