Doo Eun Choi is a curator based in New York City currently working on the Pioneer Tower public art project in Fort Worth.

Public art has the power to enliven and elevate civic spaces, provoke conversations, create social experiences that bind communities, drive tourism and spur the economy. The updated Fort Worth Public Art Master Plan has city and community leadership poised for significant new artistic endeavors.

Learn more about proposals for iconic works of public art to be created for Fort Worth’s signature urban spaces at a panel discussion at 6 p.m. Sept. 27 at the Kimbell Art Museum, 3333 Camp Bowie Blvd. The program is titled “Making a Public Spectacle: Fort Worth’s Re-energized Public Art Program.”
