There’s a sense in which all sculpture is public art, and in which all public art is a form of sculpture, regardless of how it is made, regardless of the style it fashions. For of the visual arts, sculpture is the one art form that makes its passage back through the looking glass; it is the one that violates the separation between the aesthetic realm and our own; it is the one that departs its native territory of imaginative space and enters into our world, rather than requiring that, to meet it, we imaginatively disembark the here and now and make the move into its world. Sculpture is— or rather, the contents of a work of sculpture, the things and events depicted, the tale being told—physically real.
