welcome - Edmonton Arts Council

The Edmonton Arts Council administers the Public Art Policy and provides advice and services about public art to the City of Edmonton. 

C458D: Public Art to Enhance Edmonton's Public Realm

Art in public spaces is essential for integrating art, design and creative ideas into public life. Public art:
● actively engages citizens and artistic leaders in planning and building an inclusive, attractive, liveable, healthy, and thriving city for the future.
● connects communities in cultural experiences that create a sense of belonging and connectedness to people, places, stories and creative ideas
● builds memorable urban places, neighbourhood vibrancy and unique city identity.

By investing in public art the City of Edmonton supports the local economy and helps build an attractive, healthy and thriving city where creative spaces emerge and art, design, and culture flourish.
