 Public Art

The City of Belmont is committed to developing an integral strategy and policy for the ongoing provision of public art in our City.

Public Art Directions and Masterplan 2011-2015

‘Public Art Directions and Masterplan 2011-2015’ aims to create a signature identity for the City which will reinforce and enhance its reputation and vision as a leader in contemporary art and culture. The proposed systemic incorporation of Public Art via the City of Belmont’s Public Art Program will facilitate a distinct and diverse collection of temporary and permanent artworks in public places which illuminate, celebrate and contribute to Belmont’s unique culture.

The Springs Public Art Strategy

The Public Art Advisory Panel (PAAP) believe it is important that there is a consistent and transparent approach when approving public art for The Springs, resulting in an array of different types of quality artworks.

‘The Springs - Public Art Strategy’ aims to provide a framework for the development of public art within The Springs precinct contributing towards the quality and amenity of the public realm.
