This article focuses on different art that had an impact on the election.

Public Art : An essential component

Public art is a multifaceted field of inquiry; it encompasses a wide variety of creative expressions in the public realm.

Each public art program’s intention varies; definitions and generalizations are not commonly held. Some communities see public art as a way of enhancing or personalizing otherwise impersonal spaces. Others view it as a means to activate civic dialogue or provide a vehicle for the community to express its identity.
