This is a great public dataset to have! How excellent! Thanks so much! I know that someone is going to do something really excellent with this.

I saw 500+ records in the .cvs file. Why did you say it has more than 1800 publicly owned artwork? Am I missing something here?

Here is a map of the locations of the artwork here. http://rpubs.com/ww44ss/161381 Note that the data as downloaded from the site are a mess and require significant cleaning. If you look at my github you can get a cleaner version of the data.
