Description


Wide-ranging and timely, The Practice of Public Art brings together practicing artists, curators, activists, art writers, administrators, city planners, and educators from the United Kingdom and United States to offer differing perspectives on the many facets of the public art process. The Practice of Public Art examines the continual evolution of public art, from monuments and memorials to socially engaged public art practice. Topics include constructing new models for developing and commissioning public art works, understanding the challenges of public art vs. public design, and unraveling the relationships between public artists and the communities they serve. The Practice of Public Art offers a diverse perspective on the complex nature of public art in the twenty-first century.
