When the term 'public art' was born?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Public Art : One Thread

Does anybody know when, where and who used the term 'public art' for the first time? It might be at first described as 'art in public places' or something like that. But sometime in seventies, I guess, the term public art had generally been recognized. But I'm not sure for detail, and since I have limited access for the resources published in English, I need your help. Thanks for your assistance.
