In September, the Columbia Design League, a philanthropic  organization of the Columbia Museum of Art, chose Jonathan  Brilliant’s fortune cookies as the winner of its first “Play With Your  City” public art competition. Brilliant’s “Field of Good Fortune,” a  temporary series of life-size fortune cookies made of sign material  mounted to metal sheeting, will be placed in a grassy area along  Main Street. The design league is giving Brilliant $3,000 to create his piece,  which, according to Brilliant’s website, should be completed by  May. “It’s a lot easier to fund ephemeral art than sculptures and  murals,” Anna Redwine, the design league’s president, said. “But  we don’t have a history that is very visible of people doing  ephemeral art in Columbia.” Brilliant was adamant about the work being temporary, and the  discussion of temporary versus permanent is an engaging topic. A  greater — and of more importance, one could argue — point is  how do you measure public art?
