Public art is collective community expression. It is a unique collaboration involving artists, architects, local residents, stake holders, civic leaders and construction teams. The scale can range from multi-million dollar infrastructure installations to site specific poetry and experiential performances. Its purpose can be as direct as placemaking and way finding or as lofty as heightened awareness and the celebration of our diverse voices. Every work of Public Art is a declaration of our collective values, a reflection of time and place and a conversation with future generations.
