Public art

Public art plays an important role in developing opportunities for artists to display their work and to also provide our community and visitors with vibrant and engaging public spaces

Public art also creates new opportunities for the community to interact and engage with artworks and to celebrate the creativity of our City.

Better Walls
Better Walls is a dynamic art initiative in Canterbury-Bankstown that featured the creation of nine captivating murals and the hosting of four street art workshops.  This innovative program collaborated with local artists to transform neglected spaces through the vibrant medium of street art.

Dale Parade

Three murals have been installed at the back of properties along Dale Parade, Bankstown, opposite Bankstown Arts Centre. This is one of a number of exciting public artworks being installed in our town centres. The artworks have energised the site with something that is unique, engaging and fun.

Local artist, Christina Huynh, painted two of the three murals, and hopes that they will instill a sense of pride and joy in the local community.

Pause Pods

Pause Pods are clusters of colourful bespoke concrete seats designed to create inviting social spaces around Bankstown CBD.

The pods were painted by a number of local artists in a series of ‘art jams’ with community participation, using the unifying theme of ‘imagine’. Each pod also has a ‘heart’ - a treasure buried inside the concrete made by local primary school students.

Pods: Cred Consulting and RDO Architects.

Artists: Tim Phibs, Tiera Boo, Mandy Schöne-Salter, Brode Crompton, My Le Thi/ Bankstown Youth Development Service.

Murals and street mosaics

The Mosaics Project involved local residents of diverse cultures and Anglo-Australians in collaboration with a Community Artist.

The Indigenous Mosaic is the fifth in a series of street mosaics commissioned by Council to promote one of the greatest assets of the City - our cultural diversity and our unique heritage.

The sculpture was created by well-known artist Terrance Plowright, who has exceptional experience in producing stainless steel artworks of high quality for a variety of public spaces and situations. The Gardens of the World Project uses plants and shrubs to symbolically represent the diversity of our community and the coming together of our residents from all over the world.

The 'Garden of Hope' mural at the Campsie Women's Rest Centre, in the Anzac Mall, at Campsie represents hope for healthy relationships, free from abuse. 

In responding to the brief for a mosaic and painted mural for Salt Pan Creek Reserve, the artists Janet Clouston and Cynthia Turner chose to reflect the river flow as a central motif. 

This mural is located in Anzac Mall, Campsie and is in commemoration of those who fought for our great Country at war.
