See: Common Ground @ City Hall Park, Lower Manhattan

I just spent the past few days assisting an artist producing a massive concrete sculpture for Public Art Fund’s upcoming exhibition. If the other projects in the show are as ambitious the one I worked on, it’s going to be very inspiring.

Throughout history, art in the public realm has been a means to represent common beliefs, values, and ideals. However, in our own diverse and pluralistic society, we value art most highly as the expression of a unique personal vision. Common Ground brings together the work of an international group of contemporary artists, each with a strikingly original artistic language and a strong engagement with the civic role and context of public art.
