. "In New York's art circles and on hundreds of Web sites, Lucy Lippard is regarded as a popular art critic, theorist, author and political activist, but she prefers to be regarded as a "cultural critic." Andover Bookshelf

"It's Lippard's long experience seeing-- that is, looking at art-- that enables her with such keen acuity, to expose how we create what we see, and how what we see creates us…", San Francisco Bay Guardian

"Lippard overwhelms us with the breadth of her reading and the comprehensiveness with which she considers the things ( art) that define place. Its intent is to explore the many things that those who make art or who make judgments about art should think about when they consider art that is…...'place making'. Lucy Lippard weaves together art, cultural criticism, anthropology and community involvement for an in depth look at how art in tourist sites is conceived and represented, and how they affect the places they transform. ."
