There was interesting discussion on radio 4 about Public Art.

There are many public funded Art (huge gold fish or huge severed horse head, etc, etc). Public supported more art last century than any time in history and quality is very dubios .

I think the same thing happened in music.
Even it was published by right-wing think tank I had to agree with many point in this report.
It would be helpful for art if Art concil would go out of business.

Here is the description of discussion:

Right-wing think tank The New Culture Forum has published Igor Toronyi-Lalic's report What's That Thing? which suggests that the recent proliferation of public art in the UK and the way in which it is commissioned has resulted in many mediocre pieces cluttering up the built environment. The solutions that Toronyi-Lalic puts forward include reducing the amount of public art that is commissioned and decommissioning the art that has demonstrably fail

Igor Toronyi-Lalic's report

I was pleased that there is at least some discussion about quality of art produced and about Quango government agencies that dish out funds to their cronies.

I don't think it will change.

I fear you're right.

The boys who went to the Public Schools will always be given their rich commissions.
