The term new genre public art, refers to public art, often activist in nature .

The definition was first used in a public performance at the San Francisco Museum of Art and later in Lacy’s book Mapping the Terrain: New Genre Public Art. Lacy defined new genre public art as being activist, often created outside the institutional structure which brought the artist into direct engagement with the audience, while addressing social and political issues.

Literary Nonfiction. Art History, Theory & Criticism. "In this wonderfully bold and speculative anthology of writings, artists and critics offer a highly persuasive set of argument and pleas for imaginative, socially responsible, and socially responsive public art.... This book will prove as valuable to art and cultural historians and critics as it will be to public policy makers, students and a diverse public audience"—Moira Roth, Mills College. "Energized by ideas and experiences in performance art, community art, installation, social history, and urban planning, artists are creating and invigorating new public art that imbues daily life with meaning and significance"—Richard Andrews, University of Washington.
