Synopsis: In this anthology of twelve essays, editor Suzanne Lacy and eleven eminent artists, curators, and critics forge a critical framework for understanding and interpreting the new public art that has emerged over the last two decades. Mapping the Terrain departs from traditional definitions of public art and explores how the new public art reaches diverse audiences to address issues of race, gender, homelessness, ecology, and urbanization. Also included in this publication is a useful illustrated compendium that chronicles the work of over ninety pioneering new genre public artists. Mapping the Terrain makes an invaluable contribution to the continuing debate about public art and how it can be meaningfully woven into our social fabric.

From the Back Cover: Cultural Writing. Art. Essays. Back in stock! "In this wonderfully bold and speculative anthology of writings, artists and critics offer a highly persuasive set of argument and pleas for imaginative, socially responsible, and socially responsive public art...This book will prove as valuable to art and cultural historians and critics as it will be to public policy makers, students and a diverse public audience" --Moira Roth, Mills College. "Energized by ideas and experiences in performance art, community art, installation, social history, and urban planning, artists are creating and invigorating new public art that imbues daily life with meaning and significance"--Richard Andrews, University of Washington.
