Public Art

Public Art around Claremont

Public art is an integral element of the Town’s vision for Claremont’s cultural identity. As such the Town has committed 1 per cent of the total project cost of new or renovated buildings to public art. It has also encouraged private developers to contribute to the installation of public art via its Town planning process. The installation of two new public art works in the revitalized Avion Way in the Claremont Town Centre is an example of the Town’s ongoing commitment.

The Town's permanent and temporary works of art, including sculptures, murals and mosaics, reflect and inform us of the rich and diverse history of the Town, its residents and their activities. The collection includes artworks on Town-owned land and on private property, commissioned with the assistance of the Town. In addition, there are numerous public artworks commissioned by private developers in Claremont.

Since the adoption of the Town of Claremont’s Public Art Policy in 2012, new, exciting and engaging artworks have emerged all around our Town.

The Town has a key role to play in fostering a creative community, and we recognise the significance that arts and cultural development plays towards community enrichment. Making visual art broadly accessible to the community helps to develop civic pride and creates opportunity for community engagement.

Our town is steeped in history and a vibrant community life, and perfectly placed between the ocean and the Swan River. Public Art gives us the opportunity to further foster our pride and celebrate our history and culture in a creative way.

Public art is an integral element of the Town’s vision for Claremont’s cultural identity, contributing to a liveable, innovative and inspiring place
