Art in Public Places

Creating a Visual Legacy

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's civic buildings.

The City of St. Albert’s impressive Public Art collection lends a distinctive character to the City of St. Albert. Residents and visitors alike can enjoy the creative, thoughtful and thought-provoking pieces as they explore the city. These artworks encourage conversation and connection in and to the community as well as play an important role in attracting creative businesses and workers. 

St. Albert’s Art in Public Places program is part of what makes St. Albert a distinct and attractive community drawing residents, businesses and workers alike. The City's Art Collection reflects a creative community with a welcoming spirit. Local, regional, national and international artists are represented in the Collection.  The artworks can be enjoyed as beautiful and interesting objects in themselves as well as objects that share stories of St. Albert. 

The Public Art Collection continues to grow through the support and leadership of community members, groups and businesses who contribute to its development. In addition, The City's Public Art Policy dedicates an annual percent for art, which ensures a legacy for generations to come.
