"Video of the Week" -- Can Public Art Rebuild Communities? -- by Florida Fine Art Blog

Can public art rebuild communities? One American "rustbelt" town hopes it can. After asking residents what they loved and hated about the area, local artists went on to paint messages based around this feedback onto the town’s bridges. Once used frequently when local industries were thriving, these bridges now see just a few trains pass over them each day. This artistic expression aimed to both restore purpose to the bridges, and unite residents.
