WELCOME to the Public Art Dialogue's fourth newsletter. We hope you have had a wonderful summer! We are proud to announce: a soon-to-be-launched, beautifully redesigned website; exciting new publications; the upcoming publication of our journal, Public Art Dialogue; and PAD’s participation in the upcoming College Art Association conference, New York 2011.

Where do people turn when they want information? In our digital era, websites like Google, Yahoo, and Wikipedia are increasingly common search starting places. To leverage the power of sites like these, public art historians, advocates and preservationists should use popular websites to share the details of public art projects with their publics.

Routledge will publish our newly founded journal, Public Art Dialogue, twice a year, in both print and electronic form beginning in 2011.

This peer reviewed journal, devoted to public art, will serve as a forum for critical discourse and commentary about the practice of public art defined as broadly as possible to include: memorials, object art, murals, urban and landscape design projects, social interventions, locative media, performance art, and web-based work.
