Gateway Urban and Public Art Commissions

This project is intended to commission and install iconic and large-scale public artworks across two gateways into Albury over a four-year period.

Our Urban and Public Art Strategy identifies the benefits of installing gateway artworks in key locations that give the initial impression of a city.

Public art is vital to community and cultural development. It can play a key role in urban renewal, place making, urban design, and tourism. Public art is also recognised as highly important in defining geographical locations helping drivers find their way around, which can improve road safety and traffic behaviour through visual connections. First impression is a lasting one and well-planned placement of public art is powerful enough to leave a lasting one.

The key locations that mark the various entrance and exist points in and out of the city have been identified using existing, relevant masterplans, traffic counts, and other relevant current working documentation supplied internally from within Council.

This project is intended to commission and install iconic and large-scale public artworks across two gateways into Albury over a four-year period.

The first half of this project will begin in July 2020 and continue through to June 2022 culminating in the installation of the first artwork. The second half of the project will begin July 2022 and be completed with second sculpture installed by June 2024.
