Art & Placeis an extraordinary collection of outstanding art destinations in the Americas, visited by millions of people every year. The book features hundreds of powerful and spectacular art works, all created by an artist specifically for their location -whether indoors, outdoors, desert, in the mountains or in the middle of a city. Each of the works has a dedicated entry that includes large-format images with an explanation of how the artist adapted their work to its environment. Art & Place presents works geographically rather than chronologically. Covering everything from carving and painting, murals and frescos, mosaics, altarpieces, tapestries, integral sculpture, stained glass, earthworks and land art, there is something for everyone in this one-of-a-kind book.
