0 Reviews
The first overview of Australia's public arts - buildings, sculptures and installations for the community - from the mid-nineteenth century to the present day. It explores how the government has institutionalised and subsidised the arts for public use, and illustrates historically government's rationale in bringing culture to the public, particularly to those perceived as 'the culturally impoverished'.
