gift

Public art pieces are often gifts for local communities. For instance, the artworks commissioned for the Folkestone Triennial were temporary or permanent artists’ contribution to the town’s life and landscape.

A tradition of offering and exchanging objects between communities still exists in many cultures. Pieces of art and craft become a symbol of respect and friendship. These days an array of objects including art works travel around the world and change their owners.

Imagine a public art work that would be inspired by these factors and could be a gift for a chosen local community.
