    Art in Montevideo,Uruguay.

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     cv28 captured images of the public art in Montevideo, Uruguay. She defines public art as art created for public spaces and it is allowed by owners and authorities to occupy space in the community. She says the public art she photographed is a clear example of "Constructive Universalism," which is an art theory pioneered by Uruguayan artist Joaquín Torres García, whose works were mostly destroyed by a fire in the late 1970s. She says she likes the specific work she photographed. "It transmits an emotion to people, and it is made in public spaces with a permit. Art provokes emotion, and it always transmits something, and it must always be legal,' she says. 'I think the more art that is brought to the public, the better cultural level of that society.'
