Placemaking - Public Art in Los Angeles
Placemaking was published by CRA/LA in 1996. It contains an essay by Mickey Gustin, director of the Art Program from 1989 to 1999; stunning photographs by CRA in-house photographer Chris Morland; and an Inventory of CRA-assisted Public Art Projects, Historically Significant Buildings; and Cultural Facilities from 1970 to 1996. Writes Gustin:
Simply stated, placemaking is using design talents to bring focus, importance and cohesion to public spaces—to develop images and provide experiences which reflect the historical and cultural essence of a community.
