Abstract

The public art of Venice is a defining characteristic of the city and is threatened by many factors. To establish public art's significance to Venetian heritage, we systematically searched previously undocumented Venetian lagoon islands for public art and recorded our findings in an electronic database, laid the groundwork for a nonprofit organization to manage the condition and restoration of all 4376 objects in the collection, and adapted our research into a book chapter for the Venice Project Center's 20th anniversary.
