The public art of Mierle Laderman Ukeles is designed to make people aware of the services and service workers who keep a city functioning. Her works often use ancient materials such as earth, clay, and tar in combination with refuse of the modern world. She contends that materials do not lose their essential qualities when someone is finished with them. Some of the pieces discussed in her slides are the barge and tow boat ballet with choreography of retired steel workers holding slogans in Pittsburgh, a six block ballet of street sweeping machines and sanitation workers in New York, and a ceremonial arch at the World Financial Center in New York City honoring the service economy with arches of worn-out gloves of workers, police walkie-talkies, and fire hoses
