Public Art

There was a time when public art meant a bronzed war hero on the plaza. Today it means something radically different. Today it is the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the living and the dead face-to-face for all eternity. Now it is ceremonial art, collective art, political art, environmental art. It is new-genre public art, the artist as aesthetician and activist, exploring his or her aliveness in the streets of the community.

"We are living in a state of emergency. I feel more than ever we must step outside of the strictly art arena. It is not enough to make art."

--Guillermo Gomez-Pena

"Unlike much of what has prviously been called public art, new genre-public art is based on engagement."

--Suzanne Lacy

"To search for the good and make it matter; this is the real challenge for the artist."

--Estella Conwill Majozo

"The work of art is a scream of freedom."


I am both a private and public artist. I may not build monumental sculptures or transform the landscape, but I mean to live a less secretive and secluded life as an artist. If I am not precisely an activist, I am nevertheless an artist willing to be public, visible, and influential.
