dc.description.abstract Landscape architecture has a dynamic relationship with public art. While public art may enhance a designed landscape, its success is not dependent on it. However, the sensation of how a public art piece is situated in a landscape and responds to its audience can be greatly enhanced with the help and knowledge of landscape architecture. Artists can use the knowledge and understanding of site specificity that landscape architects possess to situate respected and appreciated works of public art located in functional spaces. The purpose of this document is to explore the relationship between artists and landscape architects. Public art is an important part of our society. It can enhance the identity and character of communities, creating landmarks to be remembered. Public art can inform us about the history and culture of our environment, while evoking thought and conversations of community. It can be fun and uplifting, solemn or full of tension, and it can be mysterious and intriguing. The collaboration between artists and landscape architects can create new and wonderful spaces in our urban environments. By using nature and the surrounding environment, visitors can be completely surprised and engaged by what this collaboration can achieve. en
