Public Art/ Art and Social Consciousness Artist,
City Poem 14 by Jenny Holzer. This piece is interesting because of the sheer scale that it possesses and the vast amount of people it could potentially reach in a short amount of time. Work like this is typical for Holzer, who is very concerned with the transmission of ideas through text on interesting media. This is approach is drastic and thus effective in making people take notice.
