This magazine has spent the past half decade championing the merits of Public Art. Whether on a community-level, city-planning organization, or even nationally funded endowment, supporting contemporary muralism an Public Art initiatives should be a high priority for every city. Our belief is simple: art makes you feel good. Art makes you think. Art can make you connect with your surroundings, define a community's historical heritage, or enlighten its current state. And for the most part, cities are beginning to recognize the trend of highly talented artists who can transform the appearance of a locale and make it a little more engaging.

We have made no secret that we really enjoy the works of Mary Iverson, both for its environmental questions and overall aesthetic, and enjoyed traveling to Singapore with her earlier this year and participating in a lecture with her. Now, the Seattle-based artist will open up Sunk, a new body of work at Davidson Galleries in her hometown, a series that challenges both globalization and its consequences. As she explains, "the capitalist system wagers the needs of a growing population against the stress the environment can bear. My work raises questions about the ultimate destination for all of this growth."

You may remember that we traveled to Singapore with Mary Iverson and Chandran Gallery earlier this year, and Iverson is now back in the States with a new series of works at Shooting Gallery in San Francisco. In Tangle, the Seattle-area based artist features new works plus a gigantic 8' x 14' mural on canvas. Because we became huge fans of her work through the murals, its great to see her bring this back for the new show.
