Public art has the power to transform public spaces, enliven the urban fabric, reflect our heritage, culture, hopes, dreams and aspirations. Public art enhances community pride, can inspire us and make us think whether the art be large or small, simple or complex. Public art and place making draws people in, attracting visitors, businesses and residents, contributes to a vibrant community and economic development and sustainability.
