Public Invited to Celebrate New Media Artwork in City Hall Lobby
Contact : Lisa Caracciolo, Communications Department    (650) 329-2473
The official dedication of the new media artwork in the City Hall lobby is scheduled for Wednesday, March 2 beginning at 6 p.m.

Entitled Conversation, the public is invited to join the conversation and celebration of the interactive art installation that's designed to be a visual narrative of the people, places and discussions taking place in Palo Alto and beyond.

The free event kicks off with an introduction by artist Susan Narduli who will greet visitors in the renovated lobby and discuss her vision. 

The digital artwork went on display in January and is intended to bring the public into the civic space and engage them in a meaningful interactive way. It contains color-coded Twitter feeds from local, national, and global news feeds that populate the screens. Images and comments submitted by the public from a kiosk located in the lobby or online are included in the visual display.

"Conversation transforms the lobby of our City Hall into a welcoming 'home'; a creative community forum for expression," said Elise DeMarzo, Public Art Program Manager.

The dedication will include live jazz music and light refreshments, and goes until 7:30 p.m.

You can always join the Conversation remotely from your smart device to make your voice count.
