Public Art Evaluation: Principles & Methodology for Measuring Social Impact
Recorded On: 08/16/2012
When public art administrators are asked to make the case for their program, it is beneficial for them to look at both the economic and social impact of the artworks within the larger urban, social and cultural context. Is there a reliable framework that can be the basis of good public art evaluation? And what are some simple yet effective evaluation methods that public art programs can implement? These questions and more will be addressed in Americans for the Arts' ongoing work in measuring the impact of public art.
