Bogart's groundbreaking consideration of public art as a topic for serious scholarly consideration examines the sustained and organized effort to create in New York a body of municipal sculpture that would express the civic ideal an urban vision of patriotism, civilization, and good government. It follows the brief movement through its rise and fall, attempting to explain why sponsorship for such civic projects lasted only for a limited time.
