Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Are you accepting a Request for Proposal for a piece of Public Art? Do you want to better understand art in the public sphere?

Get this book to clarify your thinking during research. Topics include: Freedom of Expression and The First Amendment; scale in relation to setting; responsibilities when creating Art in the public sphere; and cultural context. For instance, a public square might have a Civil War piece with a bronze cannon, cannon balls and a soldier, but a piece with a replica of a nuclear bomb would be frowned upon today. Discuss.

This thoughtful collection of essays is helpful, and recommended.
