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.
