Public Art Around The World

More Than Just The Plaque

Public Art in Mt Lawley

Mt Lawley is a northern suburb of Perth. It was named in honour of Sir Arthur Lawley, who was governor of Western Australia from 1901-1902. As legend has it, Lady Lawley would only allow the area be named after her husband on the one condition that there were to be no pubs built in the area. That was a broken promise.

The public art in Mt Lawley is managed by the City of Stirling. “In order to enhance the built environment, express our cultural identity, and involve our community, the City of Stirling has installed artwork in various public areas. Artwork is located in the City’s parks, foreshores, recreation centres, streets, landscapes, libraries and civic centres.” (City of Stirling website)
