GUESTS: George Segal/ Sculptor Paul Ivory/ Director, Chesterwood Estate and Museum Henry Stern/ New York City Parks Commissioner From statues of Civil War generals to the Philadelphia Clothespin to the newly-built FDR Memorial in Washington, there is no single way to define and create public art. Some public art is interactive, some carries a social message, other pieces are created simply for fun. Join host Ray Suarez for a talk about public art's evolution and content, from light-hearted graffiti art to war memorials. Ray and guests will look at the social impact and history of public art.
