Public art: offering value in a recession


New York’s Public Art Fund is committed to working with emerging and established artists to produce innovative exhibitions of contemporary art throughout New York City.

Current projects include Franz West’s The Ego and the Id, a 20 foot high aluminium sculpture in bright colours, and A Clearing in the Streets, a temporary structure which houses a meadow and a panoramic mural of a blue sky.

Here in the UK, the Bournemouth Echo reports that the usual war of words has broken out.

This time it involves a £25,000 granite prism installed as part of a scheme to a traffic management scheme. Not everybody was enchanted.
