Public Art : A Guide to Evaluation has been developed to assist those who need to measure outcomes and impacts of artistic practice in the public realm. It aims to be realistic about some of the difficulties inherent in defining quality and success in art. The guide focuses on four main subjects: why evaluation is valuable; Matrix of capturing values and outcomes; evaluation from a personal point of view and finally establishing indicators. It was first published in 2009. Since then, it has been updated annually in response to changes in UK Government policy.
