Tapping into a sense of play and childlike wonder is at the heart of Patrick Shearn’s artistic practice and informs a tireless commitment to pushing the envelope with his studio Poetic Kinetics. In this virtual talk, the artist will share his guiding ethos as a creator and his unique approach to producing large-scale immersive public art experiences from Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival to Burning Man to fine art institutions, like the Atlanta Botanical Garden, all over the world.

The Philip and Elkin Alston Lecture Series is made possible by the generous support of the Charles Loridans Foundation.
