How can public art have a meaningful impact on the people who experience it?

In recent years, public art has grown beyond the display of monumental sculpture in bronze and stone, to explore projects that push the conventional definitions of art, finding new ways to engage people. Increasingly, public art often involves ephemeral works, guerrilla actions, and social interventions. People may come across these projects in the midst of everyday life, opening an unexpected window of interaction.

This book is the transcription of a day-long symposium from September, 2014, which took place in Santa Fe, New Mexico, produced by the Kathryn Street Art Festival, The Center for Contemporary Arts, and Axle Contemporary.
