Publisher Comments:

Public art commissions--how to find them, how to get them.

* First-hand advice from experienced public artists

* Written by an artist for artists

* Includes expert information on public art law

Learn how to find, apply for, compete for, and win a public art commission. First-hand interviews with experienced public artists and arts administrators provide in-the-trenches advice and insight, and a chapter on public art law, written by Barbara Hoffman, the country's leading public art law attorney, answers questions about this complex area. Packed with details on working with contracts, conflict, controversy, communities, committees, and more, The Artists Guide to Public Art shows artists the way to cut through the red tape and win commissions that are rewarding both financially and artistically.
