Big Art on TV
How about this for a contentious question from The Art Fund? "Can the public be trusted to choose public art?" Coxsoft Art counters with: Can the Philistines of the British Anti-art Establishment be trusted to do so? They get the glory while we have to live with the monstrosities they finance. Channel 4 TV will screen a series of programmes that might help you make up your mind: Big Art starts on Sunday 10 May at 7pm. "The Big Art Project is an ambitious public art commissioning initiative from Channel 4, supported by Arts Council England and The Art Fund" (title link). Mutter, mutter.
