Waterfront Public Art

PAL banner resized

As part of the waterfront redevelopment at Prince Arthur’s Landing, the City of Thunder Bay has implemented its largest and most diverse series of public art installations to date. The waterfront's public art program was developed to celebrate Thunder Bay and the region's unique culture and heritage by engaging visual and literary artists in the development of public art installations. 

Each public art competition had a specific thematic focus, together creating an interpretive narrative addressing both the historic and symbolic ‘power of place’ that permeates the shoreline of Lake Superior and the region.  

The art projects have been featured in Issue 49 of Public Art Review, a magazine devoted exclusively to the field of contemporary public art and considered the premiere source for public art information around the world.
