Art in Public Places
The City began its collection in the 1970s and in this time the collection has grown to include over 250 unique pieces in its collection in a variety of mediums including pottery, painting, sculpture and fibre arts. Most of these pieces are on display throughout St. Albert civic buildings.
Through its Art in Public Places Program, St. Albert solidifies its unique position and fosters the image and identity of the City through cultural stewardship. The Art in Public Places Program is helping guide the evolution of a distinct and vibrant civic personality and creating a visual legacy for generations to come.
Public art evokes meaning in the public realm by providing a visually rich and exciting environment, while playing a role in attracting creative businesses and workers, reflecting diverse cultural character and encouraging the growth, education, and experience of "culturally educated" public.
