Radio Boston on WBUR, had a very interesting discussion today about "Public Art in Massachusetts." I heard about half of the show in the car, and I'm trying to listen to the rest online (if I can figure out how to do it). The part I heard was about public art opportunities (or lack of opportunities) in Boston, and there was a short comparison to Philadelphia, Chicago, and Seattle.
I went to Art School in Philadelphia, and was there for a visit in April. Philadelphia is full of art. It's everywhere. Every time you turn the corner, there's a mural or sculpture. Truly wonderful. Maybe some day, Boston, and other cities and towns (besides Cambridge) in Massachusetts, can offer a similar experience.
