'The Chicago-based public art program "Culture in Action" addressed such pressing urban issues as minority youth leadership and gang violence, HIV/AIDS caregiving, public housing, multicultural demographics and neighborhood, achievements by women, labor and management relations, and ecology. "Culture in Action" took place from 1992 through 1993 and was organized by Sculpture Chicago, a decade-old visual arts organization that specializes in unique public art and education programs.[...]Through documentation and critical essays by Mary Jane Jacob, Michael Brenson, and Eva M. Olson, this book expands on the underlying concepts and evolving realities of "Culture in Action." The reader is invited to discover nothing less than a redefinition of public art.' - from front flap
