Editorial Reviews

Review

“The articles cover a broad range of topics from diverse perspectives. All speak to some aspect of the patronage, production, iconography, or meaning of public art, and some question the very nature and definition of public art itself. Thus these inquiries begin to define a new field . . . of American material culture studies.”—Winterthur Portfolio

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The contemporary views of public art and its role in society today are varied and not at all agreed upon on all points. The various hot button topics that help describe what public art is, what it has done, what it is supposed to do, how it succeeded and how it failed, are all subjects in this anthology.
