Art & Place celebrates the most spectacular, uplifting and outstanding examples of site-specific art in the Americas. Whether created for indoor spaces, or urban, desert or mountainous settings, art made for a specific place is some of the most adventurous, bold and exciting art that you can ever experience.

Over 500 artworks from all periods, arranged geographically across fifteen countries that span the Americas, from Canada to Argentina, have been specially selected by a panel of experts. Every work examined in this extraordinary book remains permanently in situ, creatively integrated with its specific environment. An enormous variety of schools and styles can be compared, as well as a wealth of different techniques and media, from cave paintings and contemporary sculpture to murals, stained glass, reliefs and land art.

Art & Place features works by internationally recognized artists – Spiral Jetty by Robert Smithson, Anish Kapoor's Cloud Gate, murals by John Singer Sargent for Boston’s Public Library, and Diego Rivera’s epic History of Mexico mural in Mexico City among many others – as well the art of ancient cultures, such as the Nasca lines in Peru or rock art in California. Some works are instantly recognizable while others are less familiar, but each one creates a sense of place and provides an individual reflection of art and culture in the Americas.
