Public Art Register
The Port Pirie Regional Council is very proud of the public art displayed in our area and believes public art will help to shape the future streetscapes of the region.
Council encourages ongoing development of public art in the Council region that will define a sense of place, foster civic identity and pride, and provide inspiration for residents and visitors alike. Council’s strategy includes forming a Public Art Selection Group. This group will be responsible for artist shortlisting, selection of concept designs and design development. It will also conduct public consultation where required to ensure public artworks meet the needs of the community.
Council’s Director Corporate & Community David Kilsby said public art had many benefits including developing awareness and a strong sense of community pride. “Port Pirie Regional Council expects that public art will help create an environment that reflects pride, enables recognition and respect for the past and delivers a range of outcomes through community involvement”
