Public Art

Why Community Art?
Community art creates attachment to one’s community! Cities gain value through community art – cultural, social and economic value. It reflects and reveals our society, adds meaning to our cities and uniqueness to our communities. Community art provides an intersection between past, present and future, between disciplines, and between ideas.
