Does Anybody Care About Public Art?
A week or so ago, I ran across this link to an article about a controversy over the value of public art in San Diego. Its an interesting debate. Seems the mayor has halted funding for art projects. Some think that there are more important things for governments to spend money on. Many others feel that it is essential to building community. I like the quote by Dave Rolland, CityBeat editor: "It's something you come upon unexpectedly. It catches you off guard & changes the trajectory of your thinking, however briefly. And, therefore, I'm for it."
