Description/Abstract

Public Art has grown and transformed within the last decade. Often, a committee will work with an artist to make a piece for a specific community. Jeppe Hein is a Berlin-based, Danish installation artist, whose work responds to the basic human need for social interaction. Hein’s piece at the historic site of World’s End in Hingham, Massachusetts, entitled A New End (2016), adds personal value to visitors while preserving the site’s identity. It does this through its minimalist but elaborate structure that integrates the spectator and reflects the site.
