Public Art enhances where we live, work, visit and play by encouraging interaction between art, people and spaces. Art is setting a growing trend by being an important and recognized part of our public history and our evolving culture. Public Art is truly for everyone, its free, there are no tickets, you can dress up to see it or view it alone. It is accessible for everyone, providing a bridge between the past, present and the near future. Canmore has an extensive public art collection and information about the pieces and their locations around town can be found pdf here (2.39 MB) .
Public Art is an enhancement that contributes to public improvement or civic construction projects by creating, reinforcing and enhancing a community’s sense of place.
