Creative Expressions Gallery / Submission #83 3

For me public art is not a "form" of art. Public art reflects the way we see the world.
Public art is part of our public history, part of our evolving culture and our collective memory.
It reflects and reveals our society and adds meaning to our cities.
Public art is important because our communities gain important values ​​through it culturally and socially.
Part of our local identity is built through preserving the heritage and memory of events that change and shape us as a society, some of these events are painful events that become part of the local identity and despite being difficult events, they inspire us as a society to act to correct the existing situation for a better, safer and more peaceful future.
The October 1 commemoration site interests me as an artist because of its ability to become a local icon of identity building and the reminder of "never again!"
