As someone who enters public/community art competitions, I have long pondered this subject. I'm not sure; however, my approach has been that public art is anything "artistic" on view for the public while community art should speak to/address/relate to specific predelictions, eccenctricities,cultural flavor, etc. of a particular community.

I see you've had no responses. Hopefully someone else will add their thoughts to this and I'd love to hear yours as well.
