Public Art

Showcasing our Community

Public Art

Public art is an important part of this project, and not just for beautification purposes. Featuring public art in community gathering spaces demonstrates the importance a community places upon arts & culture.

Public art can serve to express the hopes and aspirations of our diverse communities– including marginalized communities– while creating unique and interesting facilities for residents and visitors alike. Investing in public art showcases and supports local artists and artisans, putting dollars directly into the local creative economy.

Expressions of Interest

We are now inviting local artists and artisans to submit Expressions of Interest for artistic and artisan elements for the Pictou Culture Hub: New Pictou Library and renovated deCoste Theatre.

The full Expressions of Interest document can be foundĀ HERE.
