dc.description.abstract Public art in the landscape is becoming more and more expressive and creative as the awareness and appreciation of it increases along with the growth of technology. As the roles of landscape architects and environmental artists begin to blend together in today’s design world, the general public is benefiting from the creation of more innovative and artistic landscapes. As stated by the Columbus Dispatch, “The idea is to dim the connections between art, nature, and civilization.” Most cities have now made it a requirement that at least 1% of the budget for public works is to be set aside for some type of public art. This comprehensive project focused on interpreting art into the landscape and actually transforming well known art into new spatial experiences that pay tribute to both the art itself and the artist who created it. This issue was brought to the forefront through research and design allowing for new theories of art and design to mesh with classical precedents for a new generation. “The role of art is to transform spaces into places and the public into people ... it is personal, and shared.” (Miles 4).
