Course blog for American University PERF-570, Fall 2014
Huge outcry in DC today as locals have learned that soccer fields are being used during the fall season for a piece of art that is only visible from a computer, a plane or the windows of the Washington Monument.
At what point do we take public art too far and does it start to impact that use of a city? Should National Park Service have scheduled this for the winter or early spring when there are a lot of tourists rather than do it during peak fall sports season? As someone who has fought for a permit this outrages me, but I’m happy to see something new on the Mall.
