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

From the Back Cover:

American public art is a living entity always in flux. It is not relegated only to physical objects, but is manifested through an accretion of meaningful experiences. Though the art world has often taken an elitist view of popular culture, public interest in art has grown. This dynamic has thrust public art into the center of academic and intellectual debate, especially in the last few decades.

This book takes a bold look at public art through a populist lens, offering a more inclusive guide to America's creative tastes and shared culture. It examines the history of public art – from FDR's New Deal to Christo's The Gates – and challenges preconceived notions of public art, expanding its definition to include sites such as Boston's Big Dig, Las Vegas' Treasure Island, and Disney World. In doing so, it offers a refreshing alternative to the traditional rhetoric and criticism surrounding public art.

Reframing populist sentiments, Public Art: Theory, Practice and Populism lobbies for a revolution in the way we think about, talk about, and appreciate public art.
