GRAND ARTS: 'OPTIMISTIC,' 'REVOLUTIONARY'

On the International Sculpture Center blog, Jan Garden Castro revisits a 2002 interaction with Grand Arts — and advocates for the vision it set forth: "I didn’t realize until I read this book how messy and blindly optimistic Grand Arts was to commission work as revolutionary as Cronin’s Memorial and Sanford Biggers’ Blossom ... Problems and Provocations offers a free-thinking model for artists and arts foundations — one far beyond support money and/or space."
