Public Art

BBC Scotland News has posed itself the question Public art: What is it for? Regardless of the answer, the article includes a photo of this beautiful sculpture by Andy Scott: Heavy Horse (1997). He's currently working on his giant mythical water spirits The Kelpies (CLICK). I find public art falls into three categories: 1) the artistic, 2) the old pigeon perch, 3) the irritating trendy tripe by some clot who was nominated for the Turner Prize. CLICK for Scotland's answer.

Something so exquisite should be for the public; no need for a debate on that lovely horse.

But this is the best of public art. The worst is dreadful. And who pays?
