Public art brings communal unity to the Dallas landscape

In Dallas, public art has numerous manifestations. As is true for many major cities in the United States, art is commissioned to be in public spaces by municipalities, arts commissions, non-profit organizations and private enterprises. Public art, which was once dominated by famous sculptors working on a much grander scale, has become increasingly interactive and integrated into the cityscape. The change is in the social practice. It is engaging communities and creating change through art that is thought provoking while aesthetically pleasing.
