City releases draft Public Art Master Plan for public advertising
The City of Kalamunda is looking to give public art more prominence, with the release of its draft Public Art Master Plan now open for public advertising and feedback.
Do you like the draft Master Plan? Do you have any comments?
The draft Master Plan is one of the key deliverables under the City’s Arts Strategy: Creative Communities, which was adopted by Council in 2019. The intent of the Master Plan is to identify specific artwork opportunities and commission locations, materials and projects throughout the City of Kalamunda.
In June earlier this year, the City engaged renowned public art consultant Maggie Baxter, and consulted with community, local artists and the aboriginal community to identify the vision and potential key themes for public art in the City. Using this feedback, the draft Public Art Master Plan and its four over-arching themes have been developed.
The Master Plan also proposes four (4) overarching themes in approaching artwork. These themes are:
- Natural Environment: bushland, forest, geology, native flora, wildlife, parklands, walking trails, and paths, care of natural resources;
- Noongar history and culture: waterways, the story of Kalamunda, Welcome to Country, Aboriginal astronomy;
- Early Settlers: farming, horticulture, railways; and
- The past, present and future of industry (industrial areas only).
