City Hall Art Guide


Edmonton's City Hall is home to a diverse and intriguing art collection. Located inside and outside the building, the 64 artworks are accessible to visitors. They demonstrate a broad range of mediums and genres, created by Edmonton, and Alberta-based artists. Paintings, sculptures, photography, print-making, textile, and other art forms can be found in the collection.

Many of the artworks were acquired as commissions or direct purchases for the opening of City Hall under the City of Edmonton's Percent for Art Policy, implemented in 1991. Others like The Migrants, predate the policy and were featured at the "old City Hall". More recent artworks, such as Memoryscape or Wayne Ashley's mosaics were special commissions or gifts to the collection.

This guide is designed to help visitors find each artwork. More information on many of the pieces can be found by visiting the City of Edmonton Public Art Collection Online Gallery. The website contains information about these, and other artworks, as well as artists in the collection.

City Hall is also home to artworks on loan from the Alberta Foundation for the Arts, and Art Gallery of Alberta.
