What Is Public Art?

The term 'public art,' properly, refers to works of art, in any media, that have been planned and executed with the specific intention of being sited or staged in the public domain, usually outside and accessible to all. The term is especially significant within the art world, amongst curators, commissioning bodies, and creators of public art, to whom it signifies a particular working practice, often with implications of site specificity, community involvement, and collaboration.
