How to map
- name=* recommended if you know the name of the artwork.
- artwork_type=* to define more precisely the type of artwork; e.g. statue, mural
- material=* What the artwork is made from; e.g. marble, glass, steel
- heritage=* for heritage protected artwork
- start_date=* if you know when the artwork was completed (this is not the date when the artwork was installed at this place)
- artist_name=* to specify the name of the artist.
- subject:wikidata=* is the wikidata-id of the entity that is depicted by the artwork. A typical example is a bust, where a certain person is represented. The wikidata-id of the person can be entered here.
- Proposed_features/Tag:tourism=artwork - the original proposal.

We need to distinguish between public art and exhibits to the public. Public art means artwork (be it murals, statues or whatever) for example in the street, park, shopping centre or foyer of an open building. It would need to be publicly accessible, without payment of an entry fee.
Objects exhibited within a museum or gallery, accessible to the public only under conditions such as opening hours or paying a fee, are tagged exhibit=artwork.
