Strathcona County Art Collection

In 1987, Strathcona County Council approved the creation of its Art Collection to encourage and support local artists.

The members of the Art Collection Advisory Committee are responsible for collecting artwork from local artists and displaying the artworks in County owned buildings and properties where possible and practical. They also provide guidance to the Public Art Program.

Presently, the Collection houses over 350 artworks including 46 works by youth and 39 public art pieces.
