Art in the City

The City's art collection aims to promote the development of local art and artists, contribute to the cultural development of the City, and provide an insight into the historical growth and development of the City for current and future residents.

The art collection is located throughout the City's staffed premises and at some community facilities. Access to the collection is provided through a program of circulation, publications and limited viewing opportunities.

Public Art

There are many benefits of integrating art into community spaces. Public art makes the unique experience, character and history of public places more visible and accessible. It enriches our experience of public places and makes us feels these places are genuinely ours.

Past projects include:

  • Foothills Mural (near Cash Converters, in the Gosnells Town Centre)
  • Kenwick Village Public Art
  • Thornlie Community Centre Urban Art Mural
  • Peace Park Sculptures.

For more information on public art, please contact the Arts and Culture Development Officer on 9397 3104.

Current Exhibition at the Whitely Room

We Are Ten is an exhibition of what it’s like to be 10 years old and living in Western Australia.

Year 4 students from across WA were asked to think about what is important to them at this stage of their lives, what they like to do and what they would like to change in their community. They responded through original artworks and written statements to create a snapshot of what it means to be 10 years old and growing up in WA.

This exhibit of local student artworks is one of more than 65 We Are 10 exhibitions being held across the state during the 2017̶ 18 summer school holidays.

The exhibition celebrates 10 years since WA first appointed a Commissioner for Children and Young People to consult and promote the views of the state’s 589,000 children and young people.

Profound themes can be seen in this exhibition, delivering important reminders of the factors supporting children’s wellbeing and healthy development, as well as the challenges children face.

More information about the We Are 10 project, including videos of children’s artworks, and the work of the Commissioner for Children and Young People is available at ccyp.wa.gov.au
