PUBLIC ART

 

"The presence of Aboriginal art in public spaces builds appreciation of Aboriginal culture and heritage in the place where it is installed, helping to keep East Coast Aboriginal culture alive. It creates a different layer of meaning for non-Aboriginal people, educating them about the Aboriginal significance of an area in an exciting and challenging way."
