Public Art

The City of South Perth values public art as a means of celebrating the identity and history of the community, enhancing the environment and contributing to a sense of place.

The City has a growing inventory of distinct and diverse public artworks that celebrate and contribute to the City’s unique culture. The works are generally sculptural or mural in form and are permanently on display throughout the City. Some of the works are owned by the City and some are on private land, but are accessible to the public. 

For current public art opportunities please visit the Expressions of Interest page.
