What do you think is the most memorable public art in Vermont? But before answering that, let's back up even a bit further – how does one define public art?
Whether it be sculptures or murals or something else entirely, we'll discuss the possibilities for what constitutes public art and explore the offerings in the state, from the more well-known to the hidden gems, and where to find them.
Joining our discussion are Rachel Elizabeth Jones, an arts staff writer at Seven Days, and Michele Bailey, senior program director at the Vermont Arts Council. We also hear from Elliott Katz, an artist who has done public sculpture work in Vermont and elsewhere.
Also on the program, a debrief from VPR's Taylor Dobbs regarding his piece from earlier this month about Green Mountain Power and "Alternative Regulation."
