The latest podcast is a conversation with Michael Fallon, executive director of the Minneapolis Television Network and a long-time arts writer in the Twin Cities. Michael has an article in the recently released issue of Public Art Review all about creative placemaking, one of the hottest ideas in urban design and public art. We met up last week at Sweeney’s Saloon on St Paul’s Dale Street to talk all about the history of the idea of place, some of the challenges of public art, and how concepts like creative placemaking can potentially become meaningless urban planning buzzwords.
