  • Screening and Panel Discussion/ The Commons: 15 Artists 15 Spaces

     Covid-19 Artists Relief Initiative

    The City of West Palm Beach’s ArtLife Committee commissioned 15 local artists to create temporary works that bring to light our community’s need to reconnect with one another during the pandemic. The project encouraged artists to reimagine our public spaces, reflect and respond on a localized level to a global crisis, while offering the artists monetary relief. One of the 15 artists was asked to create a final short documentary that would play a vital role in producing a shared cultural memory of our pandemic times.

    This screening will be followed by a Panel Discussion with artists Ates Isildak, Dana Donaty, and Robert Fehre and moderated by Sybille Welter.

    Ates Isildak, is the documentary’s filmmaker. Using short films, music videos, and photography, Ates Isildak aims to create a safe space and medium in which marginalized communities can exuberantly express themselves.

    Dana Donaty, panelist, is a Colombian American multidisciplinary artist that explores the convergence of memory, identity, individuality, and influence with an overarching theme of play.

    Robert Fehre is an American artist and photographer who works with photography, painting, drawing, and sculpture. He is known for his colorful photographs which are an expression of love for the environment, focusing primarily on coastal cities such as Miami and Los Angeles.

    Sybille Welter is the Administrator of Public Art and Culture for the City of West Palm Beach and facilitates the ArtLife program, which commissions artists in all stages of their careers to create permanent and temporary artworks throughout the city’s public spaces.

    The Norton is proud to partner with the City of West Palm Beach to bring you this program.
