Praise for Art in Public

Art in Public, Lambert Zuidervaart’s latest book, has received high praise in The Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism (JAAC), the journal of record for philosophy of the arts in North America. Book reviewer Jason Simus writes: “I highly recommend Art in Public to anyone interested in public art in general, and for anyone … involved in more specific discussions about government funding of the arts, it should be required reading.” The complete review appears in JAAC 70 (Fall 2012): 403-5. Art in Public: Politics, Economics, and a Democratic Culture was published by Cambridge University Press in 2011.
