The last opinion I want to hear on art is Andy rooney, second to last is Reggs.

I'm gonna side with Andy on this one. The sole consequence of public art is a bunch of shitty artists who have been discouraged from doing something meaningful with their lives. The amount of pure shit that occupies our public sidewalks and parks renders dogs and pigeons useless. For every wrapped Reichstag there are about 10,000 stupid shapes made out of steel and hubcaps.


Like.....why?

I think it's a mixed bag. If you want to go somewhere where public art is actually well executed, go to Japan. I don't know if their vetting process is more thorough but there's so fantastic public artwork in most major Japanese cities that adds immensely to urban landscapes that are otherwise often quite similar.

I often like public sculpture gardens, usually at schools and museums. I generally dislike random corporate art in front of office buildings and park art

I generally like my public spaces filled with plants.

Immersive and almost invisible public art at the De Young museum.
