Public art

"Together" by Paul Reimer, 2018, Broadmoor Lake Park CIB Legacy Garden

Strathcona County Public Art Plan

Strathcona County Council approved its Public Art Plan in June 2014.
Strathcona County's 2014-2019 Public Art Plan (5.0 MB)

The impact of public art on a community is priceless and once experienced, the value only appreciates. Public art has the power to energize public spaces, encourage creative thought and transform the places we live, work, and play into more welcoming and beautiful environments that invite interaction.

Public art can make strangers talk, children ask questions and calm a hurried life. Public art can enhance the quality of life by encouraging a heightened sense of place and by introducing works of art that can touch viewers today and generations to come.
