Local arts blog Burnaway will host a panel to discuss Cinque Hick's recent two-part essay, "Living Walls and the Perils of Public Space," next weekend at Poem 88. Chris Appleton, executive director of WonderRoot; Alice Lovelace, poet and community-based author; David Stedman, educational outreach coordinator for Living Walls; and Lisa Tuttle, artist and administrator with the Fulton County Public Art Program, will be on hand. Hicks will moderate the discussion. The panel will start at 3 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 9.

In the essay, Hicks takes on the much-discussed recent Living Walls controversies and works to highlight the art-historical context and cultural resonances of the dustup. We think it's pretty good. In fact, we reprinted the second half of the essay in today's paper. Take a look.
