Public Art

Since 2010, the City's Public Art Collection has grown to nearly 20 permanent public art pieces and includes ongoing temporary art. Public art helps to develop a unique sense of place, create a beautiful, thought provoking and energetic vibe that ultimately enhances the quality of life for residents and visitors.

Public art is art created by a professional artist or in collaboration with artists, through a formal process; it is accessible to the public and free for all to enjoy. This work can be in any media and take on any shape, form or scale. Public art can be permanent or temporary; stand-alone, site-specific or be integrated into other design elements such as street furniture, architecture and/or landscape architecture.

Here's what's hot

Concepts of home circulate widely and often predictably. Sophie Sabet's immersive installation takes a more personal and honest approach to understanding how it is that we might contend with 'home' as both place and feeling.

This summer, enjoy the time-honoured tradition of English Afternoon Tea combined with a tour of the Benares Historic House. With more than 165 years of history, this exquisite Georgian style estate was home to four generations of the Harris and Sayers families.

Grab a blanket and join your friends and neighbours under the night sky for Movie Nights! Celebration Square is a fully-accessible outdoor space that is open to all members of the community. Watch classics, blockbuster hits and family feel-good favourites on the big screens.

Celebrate the Small Arms Ltd. workers and the local community who supported WWII on the home front! The Small Arms Society (SAS) is hosting a "back to the 40's" event, to celebrate the 14,000 women and men who worked at the Small Arms Ltd. site from 1940-1946.
