What is public art?

I'm starting my dissertation comparing outside art gallerys, and need to look into what public art is and how it has evolved. Thanks

I'm taking a great class at UC Berkeley Extension in San Francisco on this very topic. One of the books we're reading would probably be very helpful for you. It's called "Dialogues on Public Art" by Thomas Finkelpearl ... there's a good intro, and then interviews with various public artists about specific works and issues.
