Sculptures, as the earliest public art appearing in human history, can be traced back to ancient Rome. Until now, sculptures are still the most dominant art form in modern society. In the lecture, Mr. Tsang will share the basic knowledge of public art with us. From understanding public sculptures’ effects on people, creation process to execution obstacles like cooperating with sites and environment, Mr. Tsang will also explain how sculptures express artists’ ideas and interact with the public.
