Title: Opportunities for Landscape Architects in the Facilitation of Public art
Author: Boyd, Leah
Department: School of Environmental Design and Rural Development
Program: Landscape Architecture
Advisor: Landman, Karen
Abstract: The field of landscape architecture has become more complex through increased social and ecological implications, requiring a greater need for landscape architects to work with other professionals such as horticulturalists, ecologists, engineers, and planners. Artists also rely on the skills of other professionals when creating outdoor and permanent public art due to issues such as environmental exposure, human interaction and lack of technical experience. This project explores opportunities for the involvement of landscape architects in establishing public art. Case studies in combination with literature review, document review of public art policies, and key informant interviews of public art professionals were analyzed to find recurring challenges during the development of public art from initial concept to construction and reveal how landscape architects may be able to resolve such issues.
