Public art is artwork in any medium, created by an artist, to be experienced in the public realm outside a gallery or museum context.
Public art can be permanent or temporary and can be installed in locations such as streets, parks, forecourts of public buildings, integrated into the building fabric or any space accessible to people. It can be a literal piece of artwork such as a sculpture, a painting, a wall mosaic or a mural. It can also be incorporated into a functional object including paving, water features (such as a fountain), seating, street furniture and lighting.
Public art can be temporary in nature such as digital projections, sound, chalk art or an art performance in an outdoor public space.
This collection showcases public art across the Coffs Harbour LGA.
