Nick Wade has been documenting art in the public realm since his time in undergraduate studies at York University in the 1970's.
Since that time his understanding of the motivations which produce objects of expression in the public realm has come to include works of transport authority, roadside attractions, advertising and eccentric gestures in many materials.
He will discuss these areas of activity as well as samples of modernist sculpture, sound works, temporary works, site specific works and public art which offers new possibilities for the "monument".
He will also offer some perspectives on his own efforts to produce works for public buildings.Nick Wade has had experience Jurying Public art competitions and is presently a member of the Lethbridge Public Art Steering Committee.
