Public Art Dialogue serves 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, performance art, and web-based work. Public Art Dialogue is a scholarly journal, welcoming of new and experimental modes of inquiry and production. Most issues are theme-based, and each features both peer-reviewed articles and artists' projects. The journal is overseen by co-editors assisted by an international editorial board, which reflects the diversity and cross-disciplinarity of the public art field. We welcome submissions from art historians, critics, artists, architects, landscape architects, curators, administrators, and other public art scholars and professionals, including those who are emerging as well as already established. The journal is published twice a year in print and electronic formats in English language only, and is affiliated with the professional society of the same name.
