We are seeking scholarly articles, essays, book reviews and artist projects which are unique artworks and/or art interventions designed specifically for the pages of Public Art Dialogue.

Essays are opinion pieces, comparable to position papers that advocate a particular approach (theoretical or otherwise) to the subject.
