Public art is more than just a work of visual art being located in a public space. Public art expresses and amplifies a hidden aspect of place and may illuminate something of the history of a place, tell us something about the use or character of an area, express a community's future aspirations for a place and people's relationship to place. In short, public turns spaces into places.
Public art is said to be ‘democratic' as its location in a street, park or plaza means that it is accessible to all. Anyone can view and experience public art, unlike a museum or gallery that requires an intent to visit.
Banyule City Council is currently undertaking the development of a new Public Art Policy. The policy aims to establish a clear set of principles and guidelines that enable good decision making around public art initiatives within Banyule.
We are seeking your input.
