FEATURES

Setting the Pace     By David Raymond
Sometimes public art can imitate the ebb and flow of life and nature. Three sculptors show how it’s done in their new installations.

Public Art Under Siege     By Kris Wilton
Public art is on the rise, but so is vandalism. Cambridge’s director of public art program, Lillian Hsu, fights back by helping artists choose highly resilient, stain-resistant materials.

Sound Sculptures     By Anne Krinsky
Sound can be playful, confusing, and even frightening. Six artists take this idea to new heights offering a new landscape through sound.

Ernest Withers: A Second Look     By Alicia Anstead

How Auctions Really Work     By Jeanne Schinto
