Public Sculpture in New Jersey: Monuments to Collective Identity

Front Cover
Rutgers University Press, 1999 - Art - 214 pages
1 Review

The book contains essays that profile the state's 100 most significant works as well as the artists who created them, and features nearly 100 magnificent photographs that document these works, capturing the effects of time and the environment on each sculpture. Bzdak and Petersen selected these works for the variety of stories they tell and for their range of artistic expression, from traditional to contemporary, rather than focusing only on the best known or most visible works of public sculpture. By telling the stories behind the sculptures, the book captures New Jersey's history, especially history that may not be well known but that conveys significant information about how our predecessors lived and the official images they sought to leave behind.

Thoughtful and insightful essays, great photography, I just wish that it contained twice as many works as it does. Read full review
