Welcome to Public Art Dialogue’s newsletter for Fall 2011. This edition features a review by Christian Frock of Creative Time’s third annual summit and observations by Kelly Pajek on recent trends in the field. It also includes recommendations of new publications. For the first time, and in every future fall newsletter, we will give special recognition to our Associate and Institutional Members for their considerable support of our organization and we would like to encourage you to join our growing membership.
