Public Space, Nature, Art + Humans, Connection with Mac Love and Shanelle Smith Whigham

Public Space, Nature, Art + Humans, Connection with Mac Love and Shanelle Smith Whigham

The very act of creating art is the art. Creative Contact is when we do so, together. Creative Contact helps us truly tune into (and understand) each other. And, when we do it right, we integrate life, humanity, place-making and nature.

We can redefine what public spaces mean—and how we experience them. And sometimes, it’s the little things that matter the most.

Creator of public art Mac Love of ART x LOVE and Shanelle Smith Whigham, Vice President, Sustainability & Social Impact at KeyBank and former State Director of the Trust for Public Land in Ohio, join host Craig James in this episode of Big Audacious Idea. Together, they discuss community living and how unique approaches to human engagement can help us cope (and support each other) during a pandemic—and beyond.
