The 59th issue of Public Art Review is filled with articles about how artists and design practitioners are inviting us all—in this time of division—to focus on justice, inclusion, and human dignity. It includes feature articles about the new professionals working at the intersection of art, design, and equity; the winner and commended projects of the 2019 International Award for Public Art; an on-the-ground story about arts and culture in an economically and environmentally devastated Puerto Rico; and the work of artist-activists in Minnesota addressing water justice issues. The issue also includes articles about two communities using theater in different ways to envision their futures; environmental artist Mary Miss and social ecologist Adrián Cerezo discussing their collaboration and infusing the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals into public art; an interview with Victoria Jones of The CLTV and The CMPLX in Memphis; and the work of other visionary artists and communities.
