Summary "More Art In The Public Eye offers critical insight into the ever-growing field of socially engaged public art, through the lens of the work of a small but impactful New York City arts non-profit, More Art. As case studies, the public art projects featured strive to expose issues of injustice and inhumanity, create debate, and inspire alternatives; only committed collaboration between artists, community members, and cultural producers makes such feats possible. Artists and participants reflect on their works in newly conducted interviews, while essays from thinkers and actors in the field help situate the projects and the mission of socially engaged art in terms of greater cultural and political paradigms. More Art In The Public Eye lays the framework for the conditions under which More Art operates, highlights the meta-questions behind socially engaged public art, and seeks to bring out the many different voices that compose a project"-- Provided by publisher
Presented in the context of More Art's fifteen-year history, and featuring first-person testimony, critical essays, and in-depth documentary materials, More Art in the Public Eye is an essential, experiential guide to the field of socially engaged public art and its increasing relevance
