"Since 1983, when New York's Percent for Art program was established, some two hundred public artworks have been commissioned, and installed throughout the City's plazas, parks, and buildings. City Art documents the impressive range of Percent for Art projects and their artists - many of whom are internationally well known, including Vito Acconi, Vitaly Komar and Alexander Melamid, Carrie Mae Weems, and Krzysztof Wodiczko: painters and muralists, multi-media artists, sculptors, landscape artists, photographers, ceramists, mosaicists, artists working with sound, light, and wind...Here is an alternative tour of the art in New York's five boroughs." More than just a simple record, City Art also features informative and engaging interviews with artists, community members, arts administrators, and others, exploring how art enriches civic life and personal experience.
