Sculpting Public Space


Janet Echelman


It’s different all the time. Many commissions have a pre-established site and a preestablished budget and timeline, and they are searching for an artist. So, in those situations, I come in almost as a lay-person’s anthropologist—a kind of amateur anthropologist—where I explore, and interview, and sketch, and photograph as a means of trying to understand local identity or aspirations for local identity and local materials.
