Public Art Has Rules–who knew?

rulebook_3-e1386854118491I knew there was sets of standards by which the people with money, land and power pick art they want in the public space. Work is chosen that communicates an agenda, an aesthetic or a certain version of history that those with money, power or land want showcased.  In the last few decades the definitions of art has changed and this is affecting what is considered Public Art–Yeah!  Today this came across my social media.  UK organization, Situations, is proposing new rules for contemporary public art–some of them are great!
