A place for public art [VIDEO]

Friday, May 19, 2017

It’s often said that art is in the eye of the beholder. In no other context is this truer than in the world of public art. Good public artwork has the ability to contain specific meanings, yet is also broad enough for a personal interpretation.

Think of a piece of art as a three-dimensional poem that must be considered and discussed to be fully appreciated. What does the work remind you of? How does it make you feel? Once you have established a baseline of interpretation, ask others if they see the same things.

The FLC campus is home to dozens of pieces of public art, both outdoors and inside buildings, some on grand display and others hidden away. As you explore campus, we invite you to discover what deep, unexpected insights they inspire.
