In Plain Sight: Public Art in the City

( 41:22 )

This film follows the history of public art in Santa Barbara, from ancient cave paintings to modern installations like Herbert Bayer’s Chromatic Gate, and shows how they are woven into the tapestry of a city. Meet the artists and discover the challenging process of getting new pieces approved and installed. Public Art in the City offers a multifaceted perspective on the value and meaning of permanent and temporary public art in our lives. Funding for this project was made possible through the generous support of David Jacoby through the Jacoby Family Trust in memory of Janine V. Jacoby and Daniel R. Jacoby; Santa Barbara Beautiful; and the City of Santa Barbara Redevelopment Agency.

"There are several references to the ethnic and cultural importance of some of the works. The movie is rich in both visual impact and history, and would lend itself to research and writing assignments."Arts and Activities Magazine
