What is Public Art?

Public art is art in any media that has been planned and executed with the intention of being staged in the physical public domain, usually outside and accessible to all (Wikipedia).

Public art is a unique form of cultural expression that may take the form of long lasting works that become enduring features of our region. Public art may also occupy spaces for shorter periods of time offering changing, multi sensory experiences and new encounters that add value and attractiveness.  Public art is created by artists for sites in public locations.
