2.4: Art as a Reflection of Identity

How does the art of a community reflect its public identity? En quoi l’art d’une communauté reflète-t-il son identité publique?

According to urban design principles, public art adds great value to the cultural and aesthetic vitality of a community, and contributes to a sense of belonging and pride of one's community. Public art is accessible to all, and is an intersection of the past, present, and future of a community. Public art reveals what is important to a community. For example, the presence or abundance of public art indicates how much a community values the arts in general.
