Public art - a million different responses

From the article: "Public art offers a window into our present collective condition. It can be the most direct and free exchange of ideas we have.

"The artist's challenge is to deliver work to the public that engages the broadest possible audience. Work that inspires a million different responses -- all of them true." Gordon Halloran
