Public Art Boom in Western Australia

Author: Ms Nikki Miller, feature

The difficulties of public art are universally acknowledged - they are the same across state and national borders and usually result in compromised solutions - however if they are to be considered more as collaborative efforts between artist and community rather than works of 'art' the outcomes become interesting.
