Jessica Lack tells the tale of one city's attempt to commission their first piece of public art for years and discovers a system heavy on stakeholders and short on artistic bravery.

She calls nationwide expert witnesses to explain why commissioning public art is so much easier said than done - and why it matters, even in times of austerity.

Producer: Catherine Carr

A Loftus Media production for BBC Radio 4.
