Public Art Around The World

More Than Just The Plaque

Public Art in East Perth

Following the redevelopment of East Perth in the 1990’s, a Public Arts program was organised to help lift the rather tired and neglected inner city area. Initiated by the West Australian Government, a small percentage of money was allocated to the creation of Public Art. The sculptures and street furniture, which can now be discovered throughout the Claisebrook Village, were created from local materials, found or unearthed from the redevelopment sites or salvaged from the old warehouses that once operated in the area. In 1999 the area won a Civic Design Award for its public art program.
