Two sculptures located in New York City’s Financial District have artists and art appreciators locking horns in a sticky debate about art, commercial intent and public spaces. Before you share the current dilemma with your students, have them interpret the pieces of art separately using the pictures and questions provided. Then have your students read about the debate using the summary and ask them to state their arguments as to whether or not “Fearless Girl” should remain across from “Charging Bull.”
