The challenges of Public Art
This blog aims to address, expose and untangle the various challenges that come with making art in the public sphere. I hope it will serve both as a how-to guide and an encouragement to all artists interested in taking on these challenges. I also hope this can become a place where we share problems and setbacks and learn from each other.
