Public Art

The City of Perth is home to more than 200 public artworks reflecting the city’s identity, both past and present.

  • Highlights of our Public Art

    The City’s significant collection of major historic and contemporary public art works includes permanent and temporary installations that stimulate our thinking, deepen our sense of place and experience of space, and transform the places where we live, work, and play.

    Highlights of our Public Art Collection are available in our Art City Walking Trail and you can also view an online map of the City’s Public Art Collection.

  • Flowers in lightboxes on wall

    Lightbox Laneway

    The aim of our Lightbox Laneway Gallery is to create a public exhibition space to showcase local artists and their talent, get artistic conversation flowing on the streets and help create an artistic atmosphere within our creative community. It helps provide opportunities for artists or a group of artists to showcase their concepts, creativity and artistic intentions in the public realm, or emerging curators to celebrate and feature young artists of their choice.
