Artists have moved away from the more traditional approach to art in public parks and plazas and now design their works to reflect some of today's social and political views and commentary. The debate about the relationship of public or monumental art with the socioeconomic, political, and virtually every other aspect of our lives continues, accentuating the role of art as an interpreter, translator, and commentator, a function art has served in less public arenas for centuries. Ably edited by Amanda Crabtree, Public Art presents a provocative treatment of the subject with guest artist-writers examining a host of relationships we and monumental art have with a variety of significant areas. Miriam Rosen investigates the potential of recent communications developments such as Cyberspace, the Internet, and Superhighways; Jeff Kastner in an interview with Mary Jane Jacob examines contemporary community-based projects in the U. S. with an emphasis on "new genre" public art. Valerie Mavidorakis considers the historical view of public art commissions from Rodin to Serra and from Baquie to Rachel Whiteread and the infamous "House". Public Art is recommended reading for aspiring artists, art critics, art instructors, museum and foundation heads, and any general non-specialist reader with an interest in the public acquisition and display of art. -- Midwest Book Review
