Public art humanizes the built environment and invigorates public spaces. It can make us pay attention to our civic environment; it can encourage us to question what's around us. Cities gain value through public art – cultural, social, and economic value.
Carefully conceived public art installations and environments help make places of meaning within a community. Art can celebrate the qualities that make one place different from another. The best of public art can challenge, delight, educate and illuminate. Most of all, public art creates a sense of civic vitality in the cities, towns and communities we inhabit and visit.
