"In a culture focused on the present, permanent public art serves an important function. Art is a vision of possibilities and potential. It becomes public art when that vision is communicated to as large an audience as possible because then it does more than define our common ground. It becomes an actual symbolic connector not only between diverse members of a single community, but a vital link to the past and to the future."

~ Harriet F. Seine, Professor of Art History, CUNY
