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.
