American public artists will visit Dubai this week to create innovative public art projects that promote community engagement, civic pride and artistic creativity of local residents. Albus Cavus is an artist collective that reinvents and revitalizes public spaces for better service to community. The scale of the planned Dubai projects range from small murals and sculptures to large parks that are designed to foster imagination and playfulness.
Albus Cavus representatives Peter Krsko, Jason “Chor Boogie” Hailey and Daniel “Pose 2” Hopkins will travel to Dubai in the first two weeks of October to meet with community members, artists, students and innovative professionals to learn about demand for public spaces. Dubai’s fast-growing metropolis offers an opportunity to be on the cutting edge of community art projects. The three will present their artwork and initiate art ventures that will have positive effect on neighborhood life. This model follows Albus Cavus’s celebrated art projects in New Brunswick, NJ and their recent tour of the East Coast, called the Concrete Alchemy Tour.
