What is public art?

Public Art is the presence of art, in all forms, on the campus as an extension of the University's values. Beauty is found not only in the creation of practical knowledge and tools for the betterment of humanity, it is also found in art which stimulates and provokes an intellectual or emotive response in the viewer

Site Specific Public Art is art work created to exist in a certain place. Typically, the artist takes the location into account while planning and creating the artwork. More broadly, the term is sometimes used for any work that is (more or less) permanently attached to a particular location.
