Lowe, Seana S.
Education and Urban Society, v33 n4 p457-71 Aug 2001
Examines the ritualistic nature of community art, distinguishing elements and qualities essential for it to effectively generate private, organic relationships in settings where public independent relationships prevail. Research on two community art projects indicates that community art provides a ritual framework for social interaction by bringing individuals together, offering shared goals, and setting a common mood.
