 Public Art

Public art is an important component of place-making and the creation of both artistic and family-friendly spaces. Public art can create a strong community identity, community pride and sense of place across a variety of cultural settings. The City's public art gives an artistic voice to Rockingham’s history, community and future directions. A strong sense of place, guided by iconic public art, plays an important part in the City’s cultural development, contributes to urban renewal and design and helps the City’s tourism industry.
 
The City of Rockingham maintains a diverse and vibrant program of commissioning and purchasing public art to encourage a sense of civic identity and creative integration with public reserves, parks, buildings, and cultural and arts facilities.
 
Currently the City displays over 30 public art works. By combining a range of statuary, sculpture, community art projects, street art, murals, and temporary installations that are placed in major civic thoroughfares, parks and beachside locations, as well as surprising corners of our City, the City of Rockingham Public Art collection provides a range of viewing experiences across the length and breadth of Rockingham.

A Public Art Policy is being developed to guide the development and management of the City’s cultural assets, including the continued growth of the City’s Public Art Collection.
