A public artwork is an artwork in any medium, planned and executed outside a gallery content and intended specifically for exhibition within public space.
Public spaces are generally open and accessible to all. They can be indoors - such a foyers, atriums, airports or shopping centres - or outdoors - such as forecourts, parks, squares, and incorporated into transport infrastructure.
Public art can also involve a highly diverse range of art and design integrated in building and public spaces. Examples range from seating to landscape and building design to murals. Recent projects where this can be seen include the Castle Street carpark, City Square and the Jetty Foreshores. These projects have used substantial art and design elements from natural elements, digital environment and/or Aboriginal culture.
One of the most striking examples of public art in the Coffs Harbour region is the street art murals. Street art is increasingly prominent in Coffs, from the City Centre to the large work on the Woolgoolga RSL and many more across the local government area. Street art is specifically visual art which is developed in public spaces and can include traditional graffiti artwork, stencil graffiti, sticker art, street poster art, video projection, and street installations. Typically, the term "street art" is used to distinguish contemporary public space artwork from territorial graffiti, vandalism, and corporate art. These vibrant artworks contribute to the cultural enjoyment of our city.
There are many types of Public Art including: freestanding, temporary, site-specific installation, integrated, applied, performance based, kinetic, sound based, and digital.
