“The articles cover a broad range of topics from diverse perspectives. All speak to some aspect of the patronage, production, iconography, or meaning of public art, and some question the very nature and definition of public art itself. Thus these inquiries begin to define a new field . . . of American material culture studies.”—Winterthur Portfolio
