Format: Hardcover
Although Finkelpearl is simply wrong about the web and his setting up of an antithetical relationship between the city and its suburbs is, well, dated... his book is really one of the best collection of contemporary public art interviews and ideas out there. Finkelpearl's hands-on involvement with NYC public art programs gives him a level-headed, understated, and pragmatic interview style which avoids too much theoretical diddling and agenda-pumping. Smart, clear, well organized... anybody interested in contemporary public art should own this book.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
this is a textbook for a class I'm taking. very interesting content, well-organized. not too dry; like reading magazine articles and interviews. first book I've read on public art so have nothing to compare it to. I recommend the physical book, not the e-book.
The digital experience is not great. MIT Press has a proprietary format that requires different apps dep on your device. Books do not sync between devices so notes and bookmarks only available on the one. On ipad, there is no text highlight or copy , only on mac/pc. books not available on phone at all.
