The Public's Art

Pete Springer/OPB

What does public art mean to you?

Next week, public art will be all over OPB television. Perhaps you’ve seen one of the early screenings of the Oregon Art Beat special Everybody’s Art, exploring the statewide gallery of publicly funded art from sculptures to murals. Even if you haven’t, you’ve probably encountered public art in your community. What purpose does it serve? Do you think it’s a good use of public funds? What distinguishes public art from creative vandalism?
