Cities gain value through public art – cultural, social, and economic value. It is a distinguishing part of our history and our evolving culture as it reflects and reveals our society, adds meaning to our cities and uniqueness to our communities. Public art humanizes the built environment and invigorates public spaces. It provides an intersection between past, present and future, between disciplines, and between ideas. Places with strong public art expressions break the trend of blandness and sameness, and give communities a stronger sense of place and identity. I ask you to be bold and join me on my journey as I conquer one white wall at a time.
