Art, Community and Environment investigates wide-ranging issues raised by the interaction between art practice, community participation, and the environment, both natural and urban. This volume brings together a distinguished group of contributors from the United States, Australia, and Europe to examine topics such as urban art, community participation, local empowerment, and the problem of ownership. Featuring rich illustrations and informative case studies from around the world, Art, Community and Environment addresses the growing interest in this fascinating discipline. 
 
Rita L. Irwin, University of British Columbia

Art, Community and Environment is a necessary addition to transformative

art education libraries. No other book so richly brings together detailed

descriptions and captivating images of community-based projects that

exemplify the relationship between making environmental art, creating

aesthetic experiences and embodying the essence of place. This relational

space calls artists, community members, educators and learners to engage

with the environment ethically, ecologically, and creatively. For editors

Coutts and Jokela, community-based art practices are founded upon

participation, engagement, collaboration and empowerment. Every chapter

illustrates these notions by pursuing dialogical practices within community

contexts and thus portrays how community art energizes a strong sense of

agency among participants. Formal and informal art education contexts that

pursue the goals laid out in this book will most certainly be transformative

for all those involved.”
