Description - Public Art by Cher Krause Knight

This book takes a bold look at public art and its populist appeal, offering a more inclusive guide to America's creative tastes and shared culture. It examines the history of American public art - from FDR's New Deal to Christo's The Gates - and challenges preconceived notions of public art, expanding its definition to include a broader scope of works and concepts.* Expands the definition of public art to include sites such as Boston's Big Dig, Las Vegas' Treasure Island, and Disney World* Offers a refreshing alternative to the traditional rhetoric and criticism surrounding public art* Includes insightful analysis of the museum and its role in relation to public art
