Art, culture, and architectural design have played significant roles in the revitalization of cities, both large and small, through the renewal of decaying and obsolete industrial infrastructure. Architect Frank Gehry; William Weld, former Governor of Massachusetts; Thomas Krens, Director Emeritus, Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation; and Michael Govan, LACMA CEO and Wallis Annenberg Director, will talk about their various and overlapping roles in the transformation of three cities—North Adams, MA; Bilbao, Spain; and Los Angeles—by creating cultural centers in former industrial sites, rejuvenating polluted rivers, and rebuilding the urban landscape for the larger edification and enjoyment of both local residents and international visitors.
