Public Art Live was a workshop at the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento, California.

“Don’t miss the chance to be part of a global public art experience. Continuing their series on public art, the Crocker will host the art project Silence Was Golden, created by the internationally-based public arts organization Public Delivery. What does place mean to you? What makes a place yours, and how do shared experiences create places of community?”

Conflictorium, Museum of Conflict, Ahmedabad, India
The original plan was to take the pictures near the dumping grounds in Ahmedabad. However, we couldn't get permission to take pictures there and the ones we did manage to take did not turn out great due to the dust and traffic near the place. We decided to take the pictures near the sorry tree at the museum. The Sorry Tree is a tree where visitors hang their apologies. An act of humility and forgiveness against conflict.

Pacific University Oregon, Oregon, USA
I’m “E”, who has been auditing a Contemporary Art History class as an alum at Pacific University Oregon in Forest Grove, Oregon.

As I followed a rabbit hole, started by Gelitin’s “Hase,” my link clicking brought me to your project. After talking to the professor, selling it as making history during an Art History class, she let me present the idea of participating to the class. They agreed.

Earlier in the term, one of my classmates pointed out that several of the works we had discussed had been titled “Untitled.” We all chuckled at the prof’s response; wish I could recall it. So, it was an instant hit when we were selecting a word. Besides, it had the correct number of letters.

Sacramento Republic Football Club, Sacramento
The Sacramento Republic is a professional soccer club from Sacramento. They are part of the United Soccer League. Shot at their home stadium, Bonney Field, this performance featured the entire team, coaching staff, trainers and a small group of select fans.

“Those familiar with the rich history of Sacramento know that our city motto is Urbs Indomita. Translation? The Indomitable City is a name associated with Sacramento since its infancy because its citizens would not easily be subdued. They did not surrender to fire, floods or disease. They desired and were destined to thrive, literally moving rivers and raising their city to create a vibrant community. That fighting spirit is no different over 160 years later and lives on with Sacramento Republic FC.”
