Issue 04: The Public Art Issue

Fall 2019

$18.00

“The Public Art Issue” studies the ever-evolving factors at play when access, sites, and engagement shape the development of art and artists in the public sphere. As the roles of audience and activism shift in response to tension between bureaucracy and community, this issue provides room for reflective and forward-thinking discourse on the matter. To this end, we consider the language surrounding public art as the rise of new digital and physical platforms expand our definitions of public space.
