Trust Fund

The City has established a Trust Fund for Art in Public Spaces to provide:

  • An ongoing mechanism to ensure the acquisition of works of art for the community to enjoy in its public spaces.
  • Opportunities for the public to participate in and demonstrate its support for the acquisition of works of art.
  • Display of public works of art which communicate across language and cultural barriers.
  • An opportunity for artists to have their works purchased for public display while contributing to the aesthetic environment of the community.
  • Opportunities for the community to purchase works of art by regional and local artists while their artwork is available and attainable. 
  • Maintenance and conservation of existing works in the collection.

Donations towards the Trust Fund are accepted and a tax receipt is issued for gifts over $10. Naming opportunities exist for specific works of art.
