'Cultural diversity and artistic identity are essential foundations that give a city its value and competitive edge. Korean cities are now shifting their focus from quantitative material growth and expansion to urban environment and public space, enthusiastically supporting public art to increase quality of life and enrich urban landscape.

'...Now the 3rd Anyang Public Art Project is approaching the local community and the residents through community-based collaborative art projects. This year's APAP 2010 was organised to explore the new dormant energy of a local community through public art engaging community participation rather than focusing on a physical outcome, and to attempt genuine public art in which Anyang residents themselves participate as the main agents of the project.' (p.7)

Featuring renowned artists from Korea and abroad, 'The 3rd Anyang Public Art Project' transforms Anyang City through research and community enhancement projects. Essays, photographs from the exhibition, and artist biographies and statements are included.
