Editorial Reviews

Review

Miles mixes art and urbanism with a dash of theory.
Choice, May 1998

This book provides a valuable critique of public art from a position outside it - a superb combination of theory, speculation, and a critique of public art policy.
–Anthony King, State University of New York, Binghamton
