City of Edmonton Public Art Collection online gallery 

Public art is art that exists in the public realm and is freely accessible by everyone. Public art is intended to engage the community and to stimulate thought, feeling and discussion.

City of Edmonton Public Art Collection is a collection of works that the City has acquired in various ways over its history: some may have commemorated a special event, some may have been gifts to the City. Many of the artworks acquired in recent years have been generated by the City's Percent for Art to Provide and Encourage Art in Public Areas Policy.

The Edmonton Arts Council provides vision for and stewardship of the City of Edmonton Public Art Collection. This collection is owned by the City of Edmonton, and exists for the enjoyment of Edmonton residents and visitors to our city. This public art online gallery is a work-in-progress. There's more to come, so keep checking back as Edmonton Arts Council continues to add to the gallery in an ongoing project to represent the full collection.

Craft is an excellent medium for public art which can be seen by the number of ACC member's showcased on this public art online gallery.
