Art in the Streets examines the dynamics of public art in the urban landscape. Six artists comment on their inspiration for their public works, sometimes challenging in form and colour, sometimes poetically integrated into city geography. Physical engagement and visible access are key for public art designs which, according to Al McWilliams, are often underscored by a "leap of faith".

Featured artists include Al McWilliams, Elizabeth Roy, Gwen Boyle, Henry Tsang, Barbara Steinman and Buster Simpson.
