Public Art

The ACT is home to a diverse collection of public artwork that has been commissioned by the ACT Government and Australian Governments, as well as the private and community sectors.

The ACT Government is committed to high quality public space and public art is an integral part of the urban fabric in Canberra. Public art is important to our community because it is the most accessible of the visual arts - it is for everyone and is owned by the community. Artwork in our shared urban spaces reflects the value that the community places on the arts and creative industries in Canberra.
