The City of Port Adelaide Enfield has a strong commitment to high-quality urban realm development and the creation of special places and spaces within the City. Public art may take on many forms, including standalone pieces, murals and artworks in open spaces or works of art integrated into a building. Council’s Arts and Cultural Development Officer develops public art projects within new housing developments, streetscape upgrades, open space redevelopments and festivals.
Our commitment to creating exciting and accessible community art is stated in our Public Art and Placemaking Policy - "Council will initiate Public Art as part of its commitment to improving the overall appearance of the City and to creating vibrant, attractive and functional spaces."
Council’s Public Art Guide Book (May 2009) showcases the vitality of our public art, artists and the spirit of our local community whose sense of place is firmly embedded in the distinctive public art on display.
Council encourages and supports the design and installation of artwork in public places, such as murals, bus shelters and painted stobie poles. Refer to Council’s Guidelines for the Installation of Art in Public Places and Guidelines for Public Art on Stobie Poles and Bus Shelters.
