Mutual respect is the major component for a successful public art project. For everyone involved -- the architect, landscape architect, project manager, public art staff, citizens, artists, construction crew, maintenance workers, respect creates understanding of a variety of perspectives and acknowledges the importance of the involvement of each individual. The collaborative activity of conversation and observation can only achieve a worthy exchange of ideas and solution of problems if listening is an equal part of the process. Knowledge and sensitivity provide the basis for quality. As concepts evolve, visual communication is equally important to create a full comprehension of the scope of work and physical realization of what we know as public art.
