"It is the contention of this thesis that architecture is a vehicle for communication that strengthens community identity by bringing art and the public together.
The thesis research explores the social role of visual art within community, including its social effects, its relationship to the surrounding physical and social context, and the formal elements of visual language. Architecture, as a form of public art, can be explored under the same parameters."
