Landscapes for Art by Glenn Harper

Book Description

Sculpture parks and gardens, whether woodland sanctuaries or urban retreats, sprawling sites or intimate oases, offer sculpture lovers and artists alike unique ways to experience the outdoors, sculpture, and the intersections between nature and culture. Since the mid-20th century, these venues have become important tourist destinations and essential aspects of public life in cities such as Chicago, Minneapolis, and Seattle and regions such as Yorkshire in England and the Hudson Highlands in New York. Landscapes for Art: Contemporary Sculpture Parks surveys a wide range of sculpture parks and gardens that focus on contemporary art--from well-established, museum-type institutions to small-scale, non-collecting, experimental programs. The book includes profiles of sculpture parks in the U.S., U.K., Japan, Australia, Lithuania, China, Italy, Canada, the Netherlands, Belgium, India, Latvia, Sweden, and Finland (among others). There are articles on key topics by art critics, landscape architects, and sculpture park professionals and interviews with Isamu Noguchi, Martin Friedman, and Alfio Bonanno.

Artists Reclaim the Commons by Glenn Harper Artists Reclaim the Commons, Paperback (May 2013)

Percent-for-art commissions may represent the official, professionalized face of public art, but beyond the plaza - another kind of art has been taking shape, one that questions the very nature and experience of the commons. This book deals with this art.

Sculpture Reader by Glenn Harper Sculpture Reader, Paperback (May 2006)

Presents an anthology of articles on contemporary sculptors drawn from the 25-year history of "Sculpture" magazine. This book offers an overview of three dimensional art since 1980. It focuses on individual artists rather than themes or movements, and captures the wide-ranging possibilities that characterize contemporary sculpture.
