Public Art

Public art has the power to energize public spaces, promote thinking and debate, and celebrate an area’s past, present or future. It transforms the places we work, live and play into more welcoming and beautiful settings. Guided by the Community Plan For Public Art (PDF), public art can be permanent or temporary, and come from many sources (municipal, developer, neighbourhood). Recent projects:
