Public Art Policy

Public Art Policy

The Shire of Harvey has a Public Art Policy which forms the criteria for assessment of all public art commissioned by the Shire and is guided by the following objectives:

  • To identify suitable public art opportunities throughout the Shire
  • To enhance cultural life through public art projects that enliven and engage with the community in public spaces
  • To foster a supportive culture that allows local art, artists and the cultural industries to develop high quality works
  • To celebrate and enhance the history and culture of the Shire through meaningful public art
  • To promote and identify current and potential public art trails within the Shire
  • Ensure that art collections are maintained, developed and made accessible to the community

The Shire’s Arts and Culture Advisory Group, which includes Councillor representation, is appointed to ensure that all commissions embody artistic excellence and integrity and to advise in all matters relating to public art. The Advisory Group will assess all expressions of interest received.
