Why Do We Need Public Art in the City?
LECTURE PRESENTED ON JANUARY 22, 2014
Well-established in the urban landscape, works of public art are symbols that have inhabited the daily lives of Montrealers for generations. They are part of the public space, which raises questions about their relevance. Are they meaningful and inspirational for citizens? What role do they play in building the city’s identity?
- Dinu Bumbaru, Policy Director of Heritage Montreal
