Art in Public Places

In looking at the theme of "place" this month, we were reminded of public art that has formed part of the landscape of our lives and travels.  Often controversial, and sometimes anchored in the decade it was first mounted, some pieces repel, some we hardly notice, some are landmarks to meet at, some invoke annual public rituals or protests marking certain occasions... all serve a multitude of collective functions.  It is our biased opinion that these artworks contribute to the overall quality of a community's shared space. While, unfortunately, many of the most memorable pieces are created as testaments to the worst aspects of human nature, such as war memorials, the possibility for reflection and inspiration is a vital element of public art.
