A new journal, Public Art Dialogue, welcomes new and experimental modes of inquiry and production. Most issues are theme-based, and each features both peer-reviewed articles and artists' projects. Public Art Dialogue offers a forum for critical discourse and commentary about the practice of public art defined as broadly as possible to include: memorials, object art, murals, urban and landscape design projects, social interventions, performance art, and web-based work.
Information about Public Art Dialogue, including future topics, submission guidelines and details on free online access during the month of February, is located online:
We are eager to hear from you with suggestions for future issues and, of course, submissions.

A "Journal Launch Reception" will be held on Friday, February 11, 2011 with co-editors, Cher Krause Knight and Harriet F. Senie, from 2-3 pm at the Routledge booth in the Book & Trade Fair Exhibition Hall of the College Art Association Annual Meeting in New York City. Please join us and introduce yourselves.

The journal is a benefit of membership in Public Art Dialogue (PAD) with members receiving the journal at a discounted rate. In addition to two issues of the journal per year at a discounted rate, member benefits include voting privileges at our annual business meeting; voluntary listing in the PAD membership directory; and participation in discussion forums and e-communication. Members also have the opportunity to participate in the Public Art Portfolio Reviews by established public art professionals.
These are available for graduate students, emerging artists, and established artists seeking guidance for careers in public art. PAD is eager to have its membership reflect the international scope of the journal?s editorial board.
